Victoria will take centre stage in 2026 In exciting news this month, it has been announced that Victoria will host the 2026 Commonwealth Games, in just four years’ time. The event will be a new model, with events held across multiple regions. The opening ceremony will be held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, but four regional hubs will be established in Geelong, Bendigo, Ballarat and Gippsland, each with their own athletes' village and sport program. Shepparton is also expected to hold sporting and cultural events. Apart from providing a significant boost to the economy and jobs, the Commonwealth Games will also lead to improved community infrastructure in Victoria and world-class facilities that will be attractions after the Games is over.
