By Olympics.com

Four years on from its last showing on Australia’s Gold Coast the Commonwealth Games are returning to Birmingham, England for one of the world’s biggest events outside of the Olympic Games.

The 11-day-long event is a celebration of all things sport as well as being designed to bring together all the nations who are part of the Commonwealth.

72 teams, made up of 54 countries and 18 territories, will compete in 19 different sports with a gold, silver and bronze medal up for grabs for the first, second and third-place finishers.

At Birmingham 2022, which will be the 22nd edition of the Games, there will be more medals available for women than men and the largest para sport programme in the history of the event.

Olympics.com has picked out the key events to watch on a daily basis as well as the schedule of events for both the preliminary stages and finals.

All times below are in Greenwich Mean Time (UTC+1). Schedule details are subject to change at short notice.

Day 1 – 29 July 2022 - Flora Duffy, Alex Yee and Hayden Wilde bid for triathlon supremacy; Laura Kenny in action

Day one of Birmingham 2022 will see 16 gold medal events take place.

Headlining the action in the track cycling, which takes place not in the West Midlands but at London 2012 Olympic venue Lee Valley VeloPark, will be Teams GB’s most successful female Olympian Laura Kenny.The 30-year-old, who is married to the most decorated British Olympian of all time Jason Kenny, will compete for England in the women’s 4000m team pursuit with the men’s team pursuit and the team sprint finals also slated for today.

England will also have another familiar Olympic-medal winner to watch in triathlete Alex Yee.

At Tokyo 2020 in 2021 Yee scooped up an individual silver and mixed relay gold marking him as the man to stop in Birmingham. Although the triathlons will be sprint titles meaning the swim, bike and run are all half the Olympic distance.

Bermuda’s Flora Duffy fronts the women’s field in this contest. The Olympic champion and first gold medallist from her nation is also the defending Commonwealth Games champion. The 34-year-old will take some undoing should her competitors dare.

In the swimming pool Australian Tokyo 2020 favourite Ariarne Titmus will challenge in the women’s 200m freestyle with compatriot Zac Stubblety-Cook also promising to do big things in the men’s 200m breaststroke. The drama for the evening will no doubt crescendo with the mixed 4x100m relay where Canada, England and Australia are set to lock horns. Popstar-turned-swimmer Cody Simpson is set to make his international debut in the 50m butterfly heats.

While in artistic gymnastics the heat will be on the hosts to defend their title in men’s team final. While they might be missing Max Whitlock England are still favourites to take it.

Day 3 – Sunday 31 July 2022 – Adam Peaty goes for gold in men’s 100m breaststroke; rugby sevens concludes

Day three promises 24 gold medals with the first top prize team sports up for grabs in the rugby sevens. New Zealand claimed gold in both the women’s and men’s competitions four years ago and will be looking to repeat.

Laura Kenny will make her second track appearance today in a relatively open women’s points race. Defending champion Elinor Barker, who returns to the Games just five months after giving birth, has opted just to compete in the road race while the formidable Katie Archibald is also out meaning everything is to pedal for. The men’s scratch and sprint races and women’s 500m time trial are also scheduled for today.

Over at the Sandwell Aquatics Centre more big stars are ready to make a splash.

Super swim star Adam Peaty will mark his return from injury with a bid for glory in the men’s 100m breaststroke final. It will be the first of four events the three-time Olympic gold medallist is down to compete in. Le Clos will be joined in the pool by compatriot Olympic champion Tatjana Schoenmaker who will take on a tough field in the women’s 200m breaststroke.

More medals will come from triathlon in the mixed relay event. Team England is favoured to do well here given that the majority of the British team that took gold in Tokyo were comprised of English athletes.

Day 4 – Monday 1 August 2022 - Caitlin Rooskrantz eyes uneven bar crown; track cycling wraps up

With 28 gold medals on the line today, the beginning of a new week will bring lots of drama.

The highlight of the day is sure to be in Arena Birmingham where five artistic gymnastics apparatus titles are on the line.

At Gold Coast 2018, Rhys McClenaghan won Northern Ireland’s only gold on the pommel horse, and he will be returning to defend his title in 2022. South Africa’s Caitlin Rooskrantz will be one to follow throughout the entire gymnastics' competition, but she will personally be most invested in the uneven bars which is her favourite event. If she takes the title, it will be South Africa’s first female Commonwealth gold in gymnastics.

The track cycling competition concludes today with the women’s keirin and 10km scratch race as well as the men’s 1000m time trial and 40km points race. Team England’s Matt Walls won the men’s points race at Tokyo 2020 in Great Britain colours on his way to becoming Olympic champion in the omnium and so will be the favourite to win again in Birmingham. But he’ll have to watch New Zealand's omnium silver medallist Campbell Stewart who will be out for redemption.

Hockey fans should watch England v India which promises to be a great clash in the men’s tournament while followers of judo will be bracing for the first medal rush with five gold medals ready to be handed out.

The road cycling time trial races will provide two of the 15 gold medals available on day seven of the Games.

Elsewhere two newly crowned world champions are hoping to add Commonwealth gold to their CV. Scotland’s Jake Wightman, who beat the Olympic champion to secure his world title, is set to appear in the men’s 1500m while Australia's Eleanor Patterson will be the woman to stop in the high jump.

Rinong returns to the diving competition for the women’s 10m synchro, an event which she is a defending champions. Laugher will compete in his third and final event in Birmingham – the men’s 3m springboard – for which he is also the 2018 champion.

Day 10 – Sunday 7 August 2022 – Tobi Amusan defends 100m hurdles crown; women’s hockey final awaits

A whopping 46 medals are available on what is sure to be called ‘super Sunday’ at Birmingham 2022.

Several team competitions reach their grand finale including beach volleyball, cricket, netball, squash and women’s hockey. 16 golds belong to the boxing contest which will host all of its title-deciding bouts today.

Delicious Ore will lead Team England’s super-heavyweight division. Bronze medallist from Tokyo 2020 Aidan Walsh will be out in force for Northern Ireland and is a strong contender in the men’s welterweight class.

Tokyo 2020 silver medallist Elinor Barker will complete her comeback from pregnancy in the women’s road race slated for today. The Welsh cycling star, who revealed she was pregnant when she lifted Team GB to their medal in Tokyo, gave birth just five months ago.

Like Saturday, Sunday will see two athletics sessions where medals are on the line and there is plenty of intrigue across both the morning and evening contests.

Recent world champion and world record setter Tobi Amusan of Nigeria will defend her Commonwealth title in the women’s 100m hurdles. The 25-year-old conquered the Olympic champion in Oregon and will no doubt continue her victory lap around Birmingham.

Another who encountered medal success in Oregon, England’s Matthew Hudson-Smith, will challenge in the men’s 400m. He faces stiff competition in Bahamas’ Steven Gardiner should the Olympic gold medallist have recovered from the injury that side-lined him from worlds.

The women’s 1500m is sure to be a race to watch as Scotland’s Laura Muir continues to challenge world and Olympic champion Kenya’s Faith Kipyegon. As too will be the men and women’s 4x400m relays which never disappoint when it comes to delivering the drama.

Day 11 – Monday 8 August 2022 – Badminton medal rush seals final day of action

The final 12 gold medals of the Commonwealth Games will be handed out on Monday.

The day’s action will begin in badminton where winners will be crowned in the singles, doubles and mixed doubles contest. Much of India will likely be following this contest closely. Two-time Olympic medallist PV Sindhu is expected to perform strongly in the women’s singles competition as too is former world number one Kidambi Srikanth in the men’s event.

Team India will also be hoping they occupy one of the berths in the men’s hockey final. Last time on the Gold Coast they failed to feature in the final three with Australia taking the gold ahead of New Zealand and England finishing second and third respectively. Could the final three look a little different?

Table tennis will crown its final set of winners as the women’s doubles and men’s singles competitions come to a close, and the diving will conclude with the mixed synchronised events which are making their Commonwealth debut in Birmingham.

With hockey set to wrap up all the sporting action the Games will then officially end with the closing ceremony beginning at 20:30. Athletes will reunite once more at Alexander Stadium and the hosting honours will be handed over to Australia for the 2026 edition of the Games.
