E-mail Print

On 23rd July 2014, the XXth Commonwealth Games will open in Glasgow. This will mark the start of 11 days of world-class sport and sporting achievement. Scotland, particularly Glasgow, will host up to 6500 athletes and officials from 71 Commonwealth countries and territories across 17 sports and will welcome many visitors and spectators.

Glasgow 2014, and other major sporting events happening both in Scotland and in the UK between now and 2014, will bring a wealth of opportunities and not just to deliver a world class sporting occasion.

This plan sets out our aspirations before, during and after the Games to 2019. This is the start of the story and highlights how we intend to go forward over the coming years to ensure we reap the benefits of Glasgow 2014 and other major events. an active Scotland, a connected Scotland, a sustainable Scotland and a flourishing Scotland represent our ambitions for a lasting and positive legacy. They are about making faster progress towards a healthier nation; developing healthy communities; and a strong and flourishing economy.

Editor's comments - [ The Scottish first minister [at the time] tells us that the Scottish government "has high hopes for Scotland and for winning medals in 2014. But from the outset we have been clear the Games are about much more than this. People and organisations across the whole of Scotland responded with imagination and desire when we asked what positive and lasting benefits we might achieve through hosting such a major sporting event." These are the initial plans in August 2009. ]  Reference this?Cryer, J. (Year). This page title in italics. Retrieved date, from <this page's full URL>
