Commonwealth Games Federation President Dame Louise Martin has announced that Trinidad and Tobago will host the 2023 Commonwealth Youth Games.

"It will be a fantastic event on the island," said Dame Louise.

Trinidad and Tobago was due to host last year but the event was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the reshuffling of the sporting calendar.

This included the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games being moved into the same year.

Trinidad and Tobago was the second host named for the 2021 Games after Northern Ireland was forced to pull out due to not being able to guarantee funding.
