Fiji at the Commonwealth Games

Fiji first entered the Commonwealth in 1970 and were re-admitted in 1997 after a ten year lapse. However, Fiji was again suspended from the Commonwealth on 1 September 2009. The Commonwealth has downgraded its suspension of Fiji, allowing it to compete at the Glasgow 2014 games.



Despite not always being members of the commonwealth of nations, Fiji have participated at most of the Commonwealth Games events held. Fiji competed at the 1938 Empire Games in London. They have missed the Games in 1990, 1994 and 2010 Games during times of suspension from the Commonwealth.
