The former chief of the Football Association, Brian Barwick, has been appointed by Liverpool City Council to spearhead its Commonwealth Games bid.

Mr Barwick, who is currently chair of the Football League, Super League Europe and the National League, will head up the city’s bid to host the Games in 2026 or 2022 following Durban’s recent withdrawal.

Brian Barwick said: ‘Having worked in and around sport most of my adult life, the chance to lead the work for my home city of Liverpool to host the Commonwealth Games is a huge privilege.

‘I am delighted to be involved in this project and clear that Liverpool, with such an illustrious sports history, will make the perfect host city for the Commonwealth Games.’

‘I am delighted that Brian Barwick has accepted my invitation to chair the city’s bid to host the Commonwealth Games,’ said mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson.

‘He brings a wealth of experience both as a leader of some of the biggest sports organisations in the country and a successful career at the highest level in TV sport.

Dr Denise Barrett-Baxendale, director at Everton Football Club, will take on the role of deputy chair of Liverpool’s bid.
