PEOPLE in the West Midlands can avail tickets for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games by entering a ballot.

The Games are set to take place next year from July 28 to August 8.

BBC reports that more than a million tickets are available, with ticket prices starting from £8 for under-16s and from £15 for adults.

Through the main ballot in September, tickets will be available for everyone in the UK.

In total, 286 sessions will take place, involving 19 sports and eight para-sports.

There will be venues hosting events in Birmingham, Sandwell, Solihull, Leamington Spa, Coventry, Wolverhampton, and Cannock Chase.

Meanwhile, the local ballot is open to people living Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, West Midlands and Worcestershire. People can check their eligibility and register on the Games website.

It is part of a wider plan to ensure the event leaves a lasting legacy across the West Midlands.
