2015 Commonwealth Youth Games
|Events||9 (Athletics, Boxing, Lawn bowls, Rugby 7's (men), Squash, Swimming, Tennis, Weightlifting)|
|Opening ceremony||September 5th, 2015|
|Closing ceremony||September 11th 2015|
|Officially opened by||Tufuga Efi|
|Main venue||Apia Park|
All events took place in the capital city, Apia. The opening and closing ceremonies were held in Apia Park, which also hosted the athletics, rugby and tennis competitions. All other events (boxing, swimming, squash, weightlifting and lawn bowls) were hosted in the Faleata Sports Complex.
About a thousand athletes from 63 nations and territories participated in the nine sports: aquatics, archery, athletics, boxing, lawn bowls, rugby sevens, squash, tennis and weightlifting. Sierra Leone's delegation of seven athletes were prevented from taking part, as the Samoan government refused to grant them visas, citing fears over the spread of ebola. The Commonwealth Games Federation appealed unsuccessfully to Samoan Prime Minister Sailele Malielegaoi to reverse that decision, but also rejected Ghana's request that Samoa be subjected to sanctions as a result.
The 2015 programme featured nine sports, two more than the previous Games and matching that of the 2008 edition. Of the sports on the 2011 programme, badminton, cycling and gymnastics were dropped.
