Gibraltar and Trinidad and Tobago have been praised for their strong bids for the 2021 Commonwealth Youth Games with the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) set to decide the host city for the event at their Board Meeting later this month.

After re-opening the Bid Process in July 2018, the Gibraltar and Trinidad and Tobago Commonwealth Games Associations (CGAs) submitted bids to the CGF ahead of the deadline of October 2018. The CGF Evaluation Commission attended site visits to both countries in January and February to assess both bids for the multi-sport competition.

The Evaluation Commission was chaired by CGF Head of Commonwealth Youth Games Rachel Simon and included CGF Chief Operating Officer Darren Hall, Commonwealth Games England Sport Director Don Parker and St Vincent and the Grenadines CGA Secretary General Keith Joseph.

Following the visits and a detailed review of the two bids, evaluation reports were produced for the CGF Executive Board on both CGAs.

The Executive Board will make a final decision on the host of the Commonwealth Youth Games at their Executive Board meeting on 20-21 June in Birmingham following presentations from both CGAs. The announcement on the host city will be made by the CGF on 21 June.

CGF President Dame Louise Martin DBE: “We are delighted to have two excellent bids from Gibraltar and Trinidad and Tobago. The evaluation reports make clear that both bids, in their own distinct ways, would make great future Commonwealth Youth Games hosts. We look forward to both CGAs presenting to our Executive Board in Birmingham.

“Finally, I would like to thank the respective Commonwealth Games Associations, Governments, partners and stakeholders for their work conducted to date and for supporting the Commonwealth Sports Movement.”
