08.02.2013

The SportAccord convention in St Petersburg, May 26-31, marks the 2nd year in succession that the Commonwealth Games Federation has continued partnership with SportAccord Convention. This year's convention will be extremely busy for the CGF, as there is little more than 12 months to go until the next Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, preparations by the IFs and the CGF are gathering pace.

"This year at SportAccord Convention we will be meeting with as many of our colleagues from the International Federations as possible, " said CGF Chief Executive Mike Hooper. "Only at SportAccord Convention do all the key decision-makers of world sport gather in one place, enabling us to have a wide range of discussions, resolve issues and address opportunities in a really efficient and friendly way."

The next Commonwealth Games will be held in Glasgow, Scotland in 2014 followed by the Gold Coast, Australia in 2018. The next Commonwealth Youth Games will be in Samoa in 2015 followed by St Lucia in 2017.
