One of the powerhouses of Commonwealth sport, England have appeared in each edition of the Commonwealth Games ever since they were held in 1930, where they won 61 medals. They delivered their best ever performance at Glasgow 2014, topping the medal table with 174 medals, of which 58 were Gold. England has also taken part in each edition of the Commonwealth Youth Games since its inception in 2000.
England have hosted the Games on two occasions, in London during 1934 and in 2002 in the North West region of England and the city of Manchester. They will welcome the Commonwealth for a third time on the twentieth anniversary of the Manchester Games, as the city of Birmingham prepares to host the 2022 edition.
The Commonwealth Games and the Commonwealth Youth Games are the only multi sport events where England competes as a nation and responsibility for organising their participation rests with Commonwealth Games England.
