In early April 2018 we have the Commonwealth Games taking place on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. An exciting time for us Aussies who love our sport, we're hoping being the home team will see us win even more Gold than usual!
The main venue is Carrara Stadium and the official motto of the games is "Share The Dream". The opening ceremony takes place on 4th of April 2018 and the games end on 15th of April 2018. The Commonwealth Games mascot (pictured above) is Borobi the koala, who was officially named as the mascot of the 2018 Commonwealth Games in 2016. Borobi is a blue koala, with indigenous markings on its body. The term "borobi" is an Aboriginal term for koala.
We're excited to see the Commonwealth Games return to Australia and wish all athletes success!
We have a number of t-shirts in store you can wear to the games to show your support for Team Australia - check them out in our Aussie t-shirts section here.
