The Emirates Arena and Sir
Chris Hoy Velodrome hosted the track cycling and badminton events during the
Glasgow 2014 commonwealth Games making it one of the most used venues of the
Games. With the SCH Velodrome, Gym and Spa also reopening its doors last week, the world class sports complex is now fully reopened to the public.
Councillor Archie Graham,
Chair of Glasgow
“These world class venues
have performed brilliantly in front of a global audience during the
Commonwealth Games but are now being used again by the people of Glasgow. Some of the very
best international athletes are once again making plans to compete in Glasgow and the European
Open Judo Championships will be another great opportunity to see Commonwealth
Games athletes in action.”
The European Open Judo is a
partnership between Glasgow Life, British Judo, Judo Scotland
and Event Scotland.
