Huddleston was speaking at an event held at Centenary Square in Birmingham. There, the general public was challenging the sports that appeared in the Commonwealth Games.

He added: “We are closely monitoring our health, but we can see it in the UK and around the world. The world is open and we are starting to travel again. Certainly by next year’s convention I will be very I’m confident that I can attend a fairly ordinary and really exciting event.

“We really want to make sure the crowd is there. We are selling tickets and expecting a complete stadium, which is what we are planning.

“It’s going to be a great event. It’s great on TV, but it’s even more spectacular if you can physically witness it, because boys all miss it.”

Ian Reid, CEO of Birmingham 2022, said there was a great deal of interest in applying for tickets and volunteers from locals.

“The tension we had about the enthusiasm for the event was completely gone. Everyone agrees with it,” Reed said.

And when asked how well everything was going on, Reed said:

“Of course, like all the other businesses we challenged last year, the environment is uncertain and we’ve done a lot remotely.

“But with that all in mind, the team is in place, on budget, the venue is on track, and all operational plans are in place.

“So we will definitely join in last year on a really healthy and stable platform. I think it will be a great event next year.”

Reed also emphasized on heritage, “This is not just about 11 days of sport, but it has a lasting and regenerative impact on cities and regions.”

Birmingham-born Olympic and federal 4x100m relay gold medalist Mark Lewis Francis also attended an event in the city on Wednesday.
