The Games are still two years away but there has been no confirmation about when supporters will be able to attend football matches and other sporting events.

Ian Reid, chief executive of the Birmingham Games, stressed organisers have time on their side but added the situation around sporting events would be closely monitored.

The Commonwealth Games is worth hundreds of millions of pounds to the region and will see people arrive in the West Midlands from all over the world. Key transport upgrades and other major developments are also geared around the Games.

Mr Reid said: “The start of the Games is still more than two years away, as it will be held in the summer of 2022.

“As with any major international event like the Commonwealth Games, ensuring the health and safety of all attendees is of critical importance.

“We’ll continue to work closely with all of our partners, will be following official government guidance, and we will be monitoring the situation over the next 26 months. We will ensure that attending the Games is a safe, enjoyable experience for athletes and fans alike.”
