Birmingham 2022 unveil Beach Volleyball venue to mark two-year milestone
Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games

Birmingham, England, July 29, 2020. Birmingham 2022 has unveiled the location for the Beach Volleyball venue to mark two-years-to-go until the next edition of the Commonwealth Games. Smithfield, previously the site of the Wholesale Markets, will be providing the stage for Beach Volleyball athletes – as well as for those contesting the basketball 3x3 competition. It is located in the city centre and is a short walk from the famous Bullring shopping centre. Beach Volleyball will make its second appearance at the Commonwealth Games after Gold Coast 2018 in Australia.
Temporary courts were set-up to mark the two-year milestone until the multi-sport competition, which is due to run from July 28 to August 8, 2022, with English athletes taking part in a Beach Volleyball demonstration.

“Today marks exactly two-years-to-go until the official Opening Ceremony for Birmingham 2022 and we are on track with our plans to host a spectacular event, which will not only put Birmingham and the West Midlands centre stage but will also be an integral part of the region's recovery plan following the global pandemic,” said Birmingham 2022 chief executive Ian Reid.

“Smithfield is a fantastic location for basketball 3x3 and Beach Volleyball, allowing us to bring together thousands of local people and spectators from further afield and enabling us to create a key hub for the Games in the heart of the city centre. It is currently a blank canvas which will allow us to transform this location into a vibrant venue for two exciting sports that will no doubt bring a festival atmosphere to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games,” he continued.

The organisers expect the capacity of the beach volleyball venue to be 4,000 people. Around 5,000 athletes are expected to compete across 20 sports at Birmingham 2022.
