    Common Wealth Programme 2010

    Duration : 07 Nights / 08 Days
    Places covered : Visit Games in Delhi with Taj Mahal Tour

    Common Wealth Programme 2010The 2010 Commonwealth Games are scheduled to be held in New Delhi, India between 3 October and 14 October 2010. With a population of over 15 million, Delhi is one of the largest cities in the world. This will be the largest multi-sport event conducted to date in Delhi and India generally, which has previously hosted the Asian Games in 1951 and 1982. The opening ceremony is scheduled to take place at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi.

    Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010 will feature 17 sports disciplines: Aquatics (Swimming, Synchronised Swimming and Diving), Archery, Athletics (Track and Field, Road Walk and Marathon), Badminton, Boxing, Cycling (Track, Road Mass Start and Road Time Trials), Gymnastics (Artistic and Rhythmic), Hockey, Lawn Bowls, Netball, Rugby 7s, Shooting (Pistol, Small Bore, Full Bore and Clay Target), Squash, Table Tennis, Tennis, Weightlifting and Wrestling. The competition schedule of the Games was presented to the CGF General Assembly meeting in Colombo, November 5 to 9, and was approved. Book Now

    The event will be headed by the Sports Ministry whereas the president of the Indian Olympic Association, Suresh Kalmadi will head the organizing committee for the games. Though the dates for the games have not been fixed as yet but it is understood that the games would be held in the month of October or November.

    The organizing committee exposed the advertising campaign for the games on March 26, 2006 immediately after the flag for the games were transferred from the Melbourne Mayor to the Mayor of Delhi. Lots of thoughts were put in about the inclusion of games like cricket in the competition but BCCI's disapproval to hosting 20-20 matches dampened the chance of cricket in Commonwealth Games.

    Common Wealth Programme 2010The triathlon seems to be excluded from the competition because of the lack of suitable swimming stage. The games committee is building several new stadiums for the event to be held in 2010.

    Apart from the basic infrastructure related to the hosting of games in the city, there is a complete renovation plan for the city by 2010. The proposals have been approved and the work on those lines has already begun. This includes a complete facelift to the city with new roads, improved transport system, new hotels, flyovers, new power plants, etc. The total budget or an estimated cost of gearing up the city for the major event would be somewhere close to $17.5 billion. Development work is progress in and around Delhi so that the city is complete with the entire necessary infrastructure before the Commonwealth Games 2010.

    A special Commonwealth Games village is being constructed in the heart of the city near I.P Estate and the Akshardham Tample. The Commonwealth Games Village is being developed on a 40 acre land and the place is expected to accommodate 8,500 athletes and officials. The existing venues are being renovated with latest standards and facilities. On the other hand, new venues are being constructed in the Games Village.

    The stadiums and sports venues where the games would be held are:

    Common Wealth Programme 2010Jawahar Lala Nehru Stadium
    Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium complex
    Siri Fort Sports Complex
    Tyagaraj Sports Complex
    Maj. Dhyan Chand National Stadium
    Talkatora Indoor Stadium
    Dr. Karni Singh Shooting Range
    Yamuna Sports Complex
    Delhi University

    New stadiums are being constructed in the Commonwealth Games village where other sporting events would take place. Some of the games would also be played in a sporting venue of Noida.
