The Edgbaston Park Hotel has been selected as the home of the Welsh delegation during the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Commonwealth Games Wales has confirmed that the University of Birmingham’s hotel will house athletes and support staff as well as provide an area for Welsh supporters to watch the action.

The venue will become the "Team Wales House" during Birmingham 2022 and is set to be a media hub where athletes can contribute to television, radio and digital content.

"Edgbaston Park Hotel will be a great venue for Team Wales," said Chris Jenkins, chief executive of Commonwealth Games Wales.

"It’s modern, vibrant, and accessible - which is vital to bring in supporters and feel part of the team.

"In the Gold Coast, Kurrawa Surf Club proved a huge success as our Team Wales House and we hope to replicate the same enthusiasm and support this summer, even the warm weather. 

"We also have the luxury of ample grounds around the hotel, which I’m sure will be a welcome luxury during Games time when Birmingham will undoubtedly be very busy with supporters from across the Commonwealth.

"The team at Edgbaston Park Hotel have been great to work with and we can’t thank them enough for their hospitality and for helping us create what will be a strong Welsh presence in Birmingham."
