Hon. David Cretney MHK, Minister for Community, Culture and Leisure said, “Excitement is building as we get closer to the Games and I can’t wait to give a warm Manx welcome to guests from 71 Commonwealth nations. I am delighted with how plans are progressing and I know we will deliver a great Games to make the Island proud.”

Geoff Karran MBE, Games Director said, “We are now at the sharp end of the planning process with the Games just 200 days away. All venues are in place and will be ready for the start of the Games on 8th September. The Bowl Stadium is right on schedule and will be completed in May ready for the Manx Youth Games. This will give us a great opportunity to identify any last minute improvements before the Commonwealth Youth Games begin. We also have the go ahead to extend the Ellan Vannin Gymnastics Club, which will greatly improve the Boys’ Gymnastics event.”

“As well as the Games infrastructure being well on track, we have put a programme together of the events officials who will be required to ensure the sporting programme runs smoothly and are actively sourcing those via our Organising Committee.”

“The volunteer response from the Manx public has been excellent, but there are still opportunities for anyone who wants to get involved.”

Mr Karran added, “I would also like to give a big thank you to all the Games Partners and sponsors whose continued support helps us tremendously in putting on these Games.”

The Hon. Michael Fennell OJ., CD, President of the Commonwealth Games Federation said
“This will be the fourth edition of the Commonwealth Youth Games and its popularity amongst competing countries continues to grow. I am sure that visiting athletes and officials will have a memorable time in the Isle of Man thanks to the work and support of both the Isle of Man Government and the Manx population. The opportunities that flow from hosting this event, including volunteering, will ensure that sport continues to be an important part of life on the island providing a legacy for local communities and visiting nations & territories in the years to come.”

“The high quality competition that will be on display, the uniqueness of the venues and the athletes village will only add to the development of some of the finest athletes in the world as they look ahead to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and beyond. The significance of the Commonwealth Youth Games in the development of today’s talent should not be underestimated. Back in 2004 in Bendigo, Australia we saw the likes of Jessica Ennis and Beth Tweddle compete and then go on to become world champions in their respective sports of athletics and gymnastics.”
