“This is a great result for the Coast and proves the more than $300 million we invested in venue infrastructure for the Games is already paying off,” Ms Jones said.

“The Commonwealth Games proved to the world that the Gold Coast is one of the best destinations to host sport in the world.”
Some of the sporting events that will be taking place on our shores include the Australian transplant Games (Gold Coast Aquatic Centre), Australian University Games (Gold Coast Aquatic Centre), Kokoda Challenge (Gold Coast Cycle Centre), Netball – Firebirds versus Vixens (Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre), Judo National Titles (Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre), Squash – Australian Club Championships (Carrara Indoor Sports Stadium) among many more.
Ms Jones said it’s no wonder people want to come to the Gold Coast to play sport, given our “state-of-the-art venues in one of the most sought-after tourism destinations on the planet.”
