Get ready for the B2022 main ticket ballot!
6th August 2021
The main ticket ballot for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games opens on the 8th of September 2021. There are a few things that you can do now to make sure you’re prepared to get your tickets when it opens.
Set up a ticketing account now. This will give you a head start on applying for tickets - you won't be wasting time creating your account on the day. Set up your account here.
Take a look at the full competition schedule and plan which games you want to attend ahead of time. This will mean you can move through the application quickly rather than spending a long time deciding which tickets you want to apply for. View the competition schedule here.
When the ballot opens on the 8th of September, you’ll then be ready to apply for your tickets through Birmingham2022.com. Tickets start at just £8 for under 16s and £15 for adults.
When you log on to the ticketing site on or after the 8th of September, select the session, the number of tickets and the price of the tickets you would like to apply for. Remember, you can apply for multiple sessions.
It’s not a lucky dip, so if you apply for tickets to beach volleyball you won’t be given tickets for wrestling. If you apply for four tickets to a session, you’ll either be successful in your application and get four tickets or unsuccessful and get none. You won’t be offered one, two or three tickets instead.
Only one application can be submitted, but if you change your mind about which tickets you want to apply for you can withdraw your application and re-submit a new one. Just make sure you’ve submitted an application you’re happy with before the ballot closing date, on the 30th of September.
The ballot will run until the 30th of September, at which point it closes. If you’ve been successful in your application, you will be notified within 30 days and payment will be taken in full within 72 hours of the email notification.
So, get your account set up, plans made and set your reminders for the 8th of September.
