ChCh2026 Vision:

The 2026 Commonwealth Games



52 years since we hosted the 1974 Friendly Games. It’s time!

  • Hosted by Christchurch.
  • Events in Christchurch, Canterbury and the South Island.
  • Chance to showcase Christchurch to the world.
  • Opportunity to build and leverage our Commonwealth Connections.
  • Chance to wrap other events around and make 2026 the Year of Christchurch.
  • We’re building all the kit, so let’s use it!
