Commonwealth Games History

The Commonwealth Games were first held in 1930 in Hamilton, Canada. The idea behind the games was to bring nations together under the British Empire banner. 

Eleven countries Australia, Bermuda, Britsih Guyana, Canada, England, Northern Ireland, Newfoundland, New Zealand, Scotland, South Africa and Wales competed in six sports. 

Nine countries have hosted the games since 1930, Australia, Canada, England, India, Jamaica, Malaysia, New Zealand, Scotland and Wales.

There have been 22 events with the only missing years, those of 1942 and 1946 because of the 2nd World War.
