GC2018 will be in a class of its own

In April 2018 the Gold Coast will welcome 6600 athletes and officials from 70 nations and territories as host of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).

GC2018 is about more than just 11 days of sporting competition: it will deliver a lasting legacy to the state.

The initial ticket request phase wrapped up in May this year, however all remaining tickets will be made available on the GC2018 website in July.

Attendees will enjoy the spectacular facilities, including three new world-class sporting venues that are already providing ongoing opportunities for elite and grassroots sporting participation.

The $104 million Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre was the latest of these to be unveiled on 29 April, and will host the badminton, weightlifting and wrestling competitions during GC2018. The Anna Meares Velodrome, opened in November 2016, hosted the 2017 Cycling Australia Track National Championships in March and the Coomera Indoor Sports Centre, opened in August 2016, will host the GC2018 gymnastics competition and netball final.
