A revolutionary approach across Victoria led by the Greater Shepparton City Council would see a potential Commonwealth Games held across eleven regional cities in 2030.

"The Greater Victoria" bid concept was announced recently at the iconic Victoria Park Lake in central Shepparton attended by Greater Shepparton City Council Mayor Dinney Adem, Member for Shepparton District Suzanna Sheed, Victorian sporting legend John Steffensen and other members of a newly formed bid working group including Chair Adem Karafili, Deputy Chair Nick Holland and Heloise Pratt AM.

"This is a "first of its kind" vision - the "People's Games" and what we believe could form the blueprint for future major sporting events given the cost required and infrastructure needed to hold global competitions like the Commonwealth Games" declared Greater Shepparton City Council Mayor Dinney Adem.
