English tour Gold Coast Comm Games facilities

Representative from England are among the first of many team officials to inspect sporting facilities ahead of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

They are on the lookout for training venues to use in the lead up to the 2018 Games holding camp.

Minister for the Commonwealth Games Jann Stuckey said we offer a variety of world class facilities for sporting teams around the globe.


“We can expect around 600 English athletes and officials to be involved, which will provide a considerable economic boost to local businesses, as well as create great local excitement for the event,” Ms Stuckey said.

“The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games will be the largest sporting event in Australia in more than a decade.”

The Queensland Government is hosting Mr Don Parker (Sports Director) and Ms Louise Bell (Logistics Manager) from Commonwealth Games England.

Mr Parker said they were impressed with the facilities they had seen so far.

“Our focus is on delivering for our team at the Glasgow Games in July but we are very much looking forward to the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast and feel many friends and family of the team will travel to Queensland in 2018 and make the most of the diverse attraction the state has to offer.”
