    Liverpool Football Club U18 manager and club legend Steven Gerrard has today given his backing to Liverpool’s bid to become the host city for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.



    Gerrard, former club captain and UEFA Champions League winner, has backed the bid for his hometown city and believes it would be fantastic to see the city host the Games. Anfield, the home of Liverpool Football Club, will be hosting Rugby 7s and ceremonies during Games time.

    Gerrard joins a host of elite athletes who are backing Liverpool’s bid, including former teammates Jamie Carragher and Robbie Fowler, Olympic heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson, World boxing champion Tony Bellew and Commonwealth and Olympic Games medallists Steve Parry and Beth Tweddle.

    Liverpool was this week named the ‘UK’s Greatest Sporting City for 2017’ in a study released by ESPN and the University of Bath, and is proposing a transformational Games vision that will accelerate up to £1bn worth of investment in the city’s docklands area.

    Liverpool legend, Steven Gerrard, said:

    “I am delighted to be able to back the city’s bid to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Liverpool is a city with a rich sporting heritage with its two football teams, boxing stars and global sporting events such as the Grand National and the Open being hosted on Merseyside.

    “As a Scouser, it would be fantastic to have another global event like the Commonwealth Games in Liverpool and would help showcase to the World what a great city Liverpool is.”

    Liverpool 2022 bid chair, Brian Barwick, added:

    “It is great to have Steven Gerrard so positively backing Liverpool’s Bid to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games. During his career at Liverpool FC Steven was recognised as a world-class star of a world-famous football club.

    “To have both Steven and Liverpool Football Club so firmly behind the Bid is a further indication of just how determined the city is to win the right to host the Games.”
