Commonwealth Games 2014
Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games
At SSE Airtricity, we're proud to sponsor the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, taking place from July 23rd to 3rd August. We are also delighted to support Team Northern Ireland. It's all part of our mission to provide value and service for our customers and a great place to work for our staff. Go Team NI!
Hosting the Games is a cause of great celebration for the city of Glasgow, Scotland and the UK. We're looking forward to contributing to a fun and active environment surrounding the Games. We'll be offering lots of opportunities to our customers, staff and the general public to join in and support their home nations.
Looking forward to the Games
The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games is one of the biggest sporting events ever staged in the UK. The Games brings together 4,500 of the world's athletes from 71 nations and territories to compete in 17 sports over 11 days. From the excitement of the track to the thrill of the velodrome Glasgow is the place to be this summer.
Over the course of the Games, events will be taking place across three sites to the east, south and west of the city centre, but there are some events that are taking place outside the city: shooting at Carnoustie, diving in Edinburgh, and Strathclyde Country Park will host the triathlon.
If you are attending the Games it's a great opportunity to explore Scotland's largest city and the surrounding areas. But wherever you are, we'll keep you informed about Team NI's progress throughout.
