Liverpool, Everton and the city of Manchester unite for 2022 Commonwealth Games bid

Liverpool, Everton and the city of Manchester unite for 2022 Commonwealth Games bid



“Liverpool Football Club is delighted to support the Council’s bid to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Our great city has a unique passion for sport and we would be proud to welcome the Commonwealth to Anfield Stadium,” said Moore.

The Games will cost around £672 million, but Liverpool City Council anticipate the regeneration of the dockside will accelerate £1bn of investment and create more than 12,000 jobs.

Liverpool’s bid has been strengthened by the support of Manchester.

Sir Richard Leese, Manchester City Council Leader, said: “Manchester is delighted to be supporting Liverpool’s bid to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games. With the hugely successful Games our city held in 2002, and given the elite sporting venues we currently have in Manchester, we are pleased to be able to assist Liverpool in its quest to deliver an inclusive, innovative and inspiring Games for the Commonwealth.” 

The City of Liverpool submitted its Preliminary Phase Questionnaire to the UK Government’s Department for Culture, Media and Sport today as part of the ongoing candidate city assessment process.
