The official logo of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games has been revealed.

Today marks exactly three years until the start of the CWG - putting the sporting spotlight on Birmingham from July 27 to 7 August 2022.

The logo maps out the locations of venues hosting Commonwealth Games events in the West Midlands and connects them together.

The venues include Cannock Chase, Sutton Park, Sandwell Aquatics Centre, Alexander Stadium, Arena Birmingham, University of Birmingham, Birmingham City Centre, National Exhibition Centre and Coventry Indoor Arena.

The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games will be the biggest sporting and cultural event ever held in the city, featuring thousands of world-class athletes, over a million spectators and an estimated global TV audience of 1.5 billion.

It was confirmed last month that the West Midlands is set to receive a whopping £778 million investment from the Government to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

The Games will act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the Perry Barr area with the development of a high-quality new residential neighbourhood.

After the games, the development will be converted into more than 1,400 homes, the first phase of a long-term regeneration plan for Perry Barr and surrounding areas that will provide 5,000 new homes in total.
