Glasgow Sport at Glasgow Green

Live Zones & Wee Sport Sites
27/08/2014
During the Commonwealth Games, Glasgow Sport was at the heart of all activity across the city.  Hailed as the “best games ever”, for 11 days of competition, athletes from across the Commonwealth produced sporting memories and for Glasgow Sport, the 2014 Commonwealth Games gave us all the platform to not only show Glasgow what we have on offer, but the world.  

From 20th July right through to 4th August the sporting offer provided fun for all ages ranging from our Queen’s Baton Relay sport zones, summer holiday activity programme, Wee Sport Sites incorporating Commonwealth Club Days and Family Extravaganza Days to our Festival 2014 Sport Zone down at Glasgow Green.  

Glasgow Sport took the Games to the City. With the theme of Home is Where The Heart Is, Festival 2014 at Glasgow Green became the heart of the Games time experience.  The city park was transformed into Glasgow’s biggest home, and invited everyone to this spectacular FREE house party. From Thursday 24th July to Sunday 3rd August 2014 over 500,000 visitors to Festival 2014 were inspired and provided with an opportunity to experience an endless choice of come and try sports and activities delivered by clubs, coaches, voluntary sport organisations and National Governing Bodies. The real crowd pullers ranged from our huge outdoor pitch & activity inflatable, (offering a range of sports and activities) - to a very special treat, where we were fortunate to have meet and greet sessions with Team Scotland Medalists.
