“Birmingham has consistently proven itself as an outstanding host of major sporting events. The unprecedented investment in the region, including Birmingham New Street Station, the Midlands Metro network and of course HS2, will provide an infrastructure that will enable us to be great hosts to the thousands of athletes, officials and spectators attending the Games. We also have some of the most famous sporting venues and arenas in the country, and everyone at Edgbaston is very excited to support the campaign to bring the Games to Birmingham.”
