Good Luck #TNLAthletes - Birmingham Commonwealth Games

Join us in wishing luck to #TNLAthletes ahead of the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games and let’s #MakeAmazingHappen!

Together, sports distributors, governing bodies, projects and participants will post their Good Luck Messages on social media on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd July 2022, to wish luck to the National Lottery funded athletes competing at the Commonwealth Games, and you’re invited to take part.

As an organisation that has received National Lottery funding, you’re part of an incredible circle of funding, that supports athletes from grassroots up to elite level. We want to celebrate this moment together!

How can I get involved?

It’s easy to join in! We are asking you to rally your volunteers, staff, and beneficiaries with a very simple ask:

Share your Good Luck Message for athletes on social media on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd July, using the #TNLAthletes and #MakeAmazingHappen hashtags. (Please use the #GwneudPethauGwych and #AthletwyrYLG hashtags in all Welsh language posts).

What does the ‘Good Luck’ message look like?

- Feel free to get creative with your Good Luck Message – use fun props, create banners, wear your sports kit, film yourself shouting ‘Good Luck’, head to your sports venue or outside… The sky is the limit! Click here to see some great examples from our Good Luck moment for the Tokyo 2020 Games.

- Does an athlete heading to Birmingham 2022 come from your local area or governing body? Now’s your chance to shout about it and wish them luck! You can tag specific athletes and teams, or wish all of the athletes good luck.

- We are also creating a series of assets for you to use on your social channels, alongside example social copy which will be available in a digital toolkit at the start of July.

Why should I get involved?

National Lottery players raise £30million every week for good causes, which fuels the success of sport across the UK – including the four home nation teams – England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales – who will be competing at the Games.

The National Lottery has also funded over 8,360 grassroots sports projects and has invested more than £5.7 billion into community sport, helping people across the UK access sport and live active lives. By taking part in the Good Luck Campaign, it will show you’re part of an incredible sporting network that’s been made possible thanks to National Lottery players.

Using the #TNLAthletes and #MakeAmazingHappen hashtags will also boost your social media and brand visibility on the day and give more people the chance to hear about your organisation – you may even get shared by a future Commonwealth champion! (Please use the #GwneudPethauGwych and #AthletwyrYLG hashtags in all Welsh language posts).

Together, we can flood social media with images to show the incredible impact of the National Lottery’s support for good causes across the UK.
