Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games

Get ready for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games with exciting events and a packed cultural programme.

From 23 July to 3 August 2014, the eyes of the world were on Glasgow as it hosted the XX Commonwealth Games. A modern city of culture and sport, forward-thinking and creative, Glasgow is one of the UK's largest cities and has a lively heart and warm people. All of this and more was experienced by the millions of visitors and spectators first-hand as they, and the world, watched sporting history unfold.

Glasgow hosted one of the most enduring and important sporting events in the world. The Commonwealth Games have been a permanent fixture in sport since the first was held in Canada all the way back in 1930.

Edinburgh played host to the Games in both 1970 and 1986 in which Scotland won gold medals in the men's and women's 10,000 m respectively. This year was the turn of Glasgow to welcome athletes from around the world as they compete for medal glory across 17 sports - and it did so in style. It was so successful, that it has been billed as 'the best Games ever.'

All the venues were alive with the roar of cheering as the euphoric crowds from Scotland, the UK and the rest of the Commonwealth saw medals won and record results broken. It was a record year for host Scotland who won an outstanding 53 medals, 19 of which were gold medals. Now that the Games are finished, you needn't be a stranger. A warm welcome is always guaranteed for you in Glasgow.
