Over the past 6 months, the Commonwealth Games Federation has developed a draft strategy for 2023 –2034 to build on the previous strategy Transformation 2022, implemented in September 2015
The strategy development process has involved significant stakeholder consultation which includes:
- Over 130 respondents to our Stakeholder Audit survey including CGAs, IFs and strategic partners
- Input from over 40 CGAs through pre-Games focus groups and Games-time workshops
- Input from 20+ International Sports Federations through individual interviews and focus-groups
- Input from 400+ athletes through the CGF Athlete Survey run during Games-time
- Input from over 2000 potential fans across 10 Commonwealth markets
- Interviews with strategic partners including from B2022, Victoria 2026, Commonwealth Secretariat, and partners such as the Prince’s Trust
- Extensive consultation with CGF management team and Executive Board members, Committee members
- Consultation with external industry experts
- Interviews with senior leadership of CGFP and CSF
The development of the new strategy comes at an exciting time for the Federation and Commonwealth Sport Movement, building on the momentum of a hugely successful Games in Birmingham, and the imminent opportunities to build on this such as the 2023 Commonwealth Youth Games in Trinidad & Tobago, Commonwealth Sport programmes, and the Victoria 2026 Games.
Further details of the Strategy will be revealed after its approval in February 2023.
