Abstract: The main goal of the paper is to show that the fully commutative elements in the affine Coxeter group $\widetilde {C}_{n}$ form a union of two-sided cells. Then we completely answer the question of when the fully commutative elements of $W$ form or do not form a union of two-sided cells in the case where $W$ is either a finite or an affine Coxeter group.
