Technical Feasibility:-

Wilson Owens Owens (WOO) led the design of the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games from the initial bid masterplan proposals through to the final hour of the closing ceremony. They have recently completed the event design and planning for the Rugby World Cup in 2015, and lead the design for both the Rome 2024 Olympic Bid, and the Boston 2024 USOC Bid. They are a unique firm that offers both innovated architectural design and event planning, backed by unrivalled experience in the global event industry.

PR and Communications:-

Vero Communications headed by a team who were part of the successful London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games bid, and have subsequently worked on successful bids for the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio, the 2018 Games in PyeongChang, the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Seb Coe's campaign to become IAAF President, Gianni Infantino's campaign to become FIFA President, Fenway Sports takeover of Liverpool FC in 2010 and the current bid by Paris to secure the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Bid Brand:-

With a focus on international sports and the major event sectors, the Brand Oath team have delivered design and branding solutions to various global cities bidding to host major events such as London 2012 Olympics and Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. In addition to their bid projects they also work with a number of national and international governing bodies such as Scottish Rugby, British Rowing and Azerbaijan Football Association.

An intense 3 to 6 month period of activity will now get underway to put together the strongest possible case for Liverpool to be the host City, looking at venues for sports events such as ACC Liverpool and the proposed new Everton FC stadium at Bramley Moore against the technical requirements set by the Commonwealth Games Federation.

Local sporting stars including:- heptathlon Katarina Johnson Thompson, boxer Tony Bellew, gymnast Beth Tweddle and footballer Jamie Carragher have already backed Liverpool's bid.

A budget of up to ₤500,000 has been set aside for Liverpool's bid. If successful, Liverpool would follow Glasgow; the most recent UK City to host the Games in 2014; which estimated the event brought in ₤100 million to the City's economy.

What they say:-

"The CGF's Strategic Plan entitled 'Transformation 2022' sets out its guiding principles for both the Commonwealth Movement and the Games and confirms its 'strong commitment to and respect of human rights, environment and sustainability, health, safety and wellbeing as well as accessibility and inclusivity’. These values align closely with Liverpool's vision for an inclusive Games that will embrace and involve every community via an innovative and inspirational event."
Peter Mann, Partner 4 global.

"Having worked all around the world on similar projects, I am so proud and excited to help the City I grew up in, win the honour of hosting the Commonwealth Games."
Bernie Shaw-Binns, Brand Oath Founder and Creative Strategy Director.

"It is fantastic to be part of the team to bring the Commonwealth Games to Liverpool. We are passionate to celebrate the very best of Liverpool and deliver the best ever Commonwealth Games for the City and its people. It is an opportunity we are proud to be part of and we are determined to play our part in the strongest Liverpool bid. As a Liverpudlian, this appointment is extra special for me, when it's your home Town it really counts, and it carries that extra bit of magic." 
Kevin Owens, Director of Wilson Owens Owens.

"We are thrilled to be working with the City in its bid to host the Commonwealth Games and looking forward to helping it create a compelling case to bring the event to Liverpool. The City is fast becoming a major player in staging sports and other events and its ambition to host the Commonwealth Games is a logical next step."
John Zerafa, VERO Director.

"We are delighted to be part of Team Liverpool's Commonwealth Games bid and will bring to bear our expertise in major events and the business of sport. Our team, led by Neil Wood, former CFO of the London Olympic and Paralympic Games, has a deep understanding of the finances of delivering major sporting events and the positive economic impact that can result. We were committed partners for London's bid to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012 and are enthusiastic about the benefits that can be delivered to Liverpool and the wider region from a successful bid for, and delivery of, the Commonwealth Games."
Sean Beech, head of Deloitte's Liverpool officen.
