Birmingham scraps single-site athletes' village plan for Commonwealth Games

Organisers of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham are no longer planning to use a single-site athletes’ village.

The accommodation facility was set to be built in the Perry Barr area of the city, but the coronavirus pandemic has changed the thinking, with three sites now being used. They will be at the NEC hotel, the University of Warwick and the University of Birmingham.

Birmingham has a real opportunity here as it'll be THE big event of the Summer with the World Cup not being played till December.

Just occurred to me, they've not got long to sort something for the handover!

Capacity. Derby Arena - 1,700 in velodrome mode. Lee Valley VeloPark - 6,750. Track cycling is popular so quite rightfully they are opting for the bigger venue.
