GOLF, BMX and coastal rowing will be part of the Commonwealth Games for the first time after being added to the Victoria 2026 roster.

Shooting and 3×3 basketball will also return to the schedule for the Games in Australia.

Athletes will compete across 20 sports, featuring 26 disciplines, while there are nine fully integrated Para sports.

There are also plans to add Para disciplines in golf, coastal rowing and the cycling road race, with talks ongoing over whether this will be possible.

Commonwealth Games Federation president Dame Louise Martin said: “We are thrilled to confirm the sport programme for the 2026 Commonwealth Games, with the additional sports proposed by Victoria 2026 completing an exciting and diverse line-up.

“The Games are set to be competitive and action-packed, featuring an extensive, fully integrated Para sport programme, the debuts of coastal rowing, golf and BMX, the return of shooting and the scintillating 3×3 basketball.”
