Supporting our Home Nations Teams

CGI partners with Home Nations Commonwealth Games Teams in lead up to Gold Coast 2018

CGI is proud to be the official Systems Integration, BPS and IT Outsourcing partner of Team England, Team Wales and Team Scotland on their journey to the 2018 Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast, Australia. Read the press release for more information

The Commonwealth Games is the only time when elite athletes represent their home nation when competing at a major multi-sport, global event. The teams who travel to the Gold Coast, Australia in April 2018 will be a unique blend of emerging talent and established stars, able-bodied and para-sport athletes.

Team England, Team Wales and Team Scotland will also be sending young athletes to the Commonwealth Youth Games in The Bahamas, between 19 and 23 July 2017.

The values held by all three teams, along with their commitment to developing talent, are very closely aligned with those of CGI, which is why we chose to support them. In the build up to the Games CGI has developed a comprehensive programme of activities for CGI members, which has included the opportunity to hear direct from athletes and coaches, winning tickets to sporting events, have an athlete visit their children’s school, or take part in sporting events in the office. This has been aligned to our active wellbeing programme, Oxygen, which encourages and supports CGI members to adopt healthier lifestyles.

Our sponsored athletes

As part of our commitment to helping to celebrate excellence, CGI is sponsoring three current athletes across Team England, Team Wales and Team Scotland with Commonwealth Games experience and medal winning potential. We will be following the progress of each of them every step of the way as they hope to compete for their Home Nation at The Commonwealth Games on The Gold Coast in 2018.
