The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games is coming to the West Midlands next summer, and from 14 to 30 July, people who live in the region can apply for tickets in an exclusive ballot by registering for an account at birmingham2022.com.

There are more than one million tickets available for the Games, with ticket prices starting from £8 for under 16s and from £15 for adults.

There will also be £22 tickets available for every session throughout the Games, including all medal sessions and the opening and closing ceremonies.

The ballot is open to the residents of the West Midlands, as defined by the Office of National Statistics (ONS).

Tickets will also be available in the main ballot in September, which is open to everyone in the UK.

To coincide with the West Midlands ballot, Birmingham 2022 unveiled a refurbished basketball court in Summerfield Park in Ladywood, Birmingham.

The court has been designed by Team England basketball player Kofi Josephs and local graffiti artist Zuke, who painted a bespoke mural onto the court.

The revamped space aims to inspire participation in the sport and is part of a wider to plan to ensure the Games leaves a legacy in Birmingham and the West Midlands.

Matt Kidson, director of sport for Birmingham 2022, said: “Birmingham 2022 is a once in a lifetime opportunity for residents of the West Midlands, with the Games being held, essentially, in their backyard. We want to make sure that everyone who lives locally has a chance to experience the Games, through volunteering, spectating, or soaking up the festival atmosphere – that’s why we are launching a priority access ticket sale today for people with a West Midlands postcode. This is your chance to experience the biggest sporting event to be held in the UK for a decade.”
