Tickets for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships – a brand new event on the global sporting calendar — will go on sale to the general public from Wednesday 14 June.

The on-sale date for the 84 thrilling sporting sessions across 12 venues was revealed via an interactive light show projected onto the SEC Armadillo in Glasgow. The event will be inclusive and accessible, with tickets starting from just £10, and under-16s attending the cheapest sessions for just £5.

Glasgow 2018 is part of a brand new multi-sport event running between 2–12 August 2018 which will combine the existing European Championships for Aquatics, Cycling, Gymnastics, Rowing and Triathlon – plus a brand new Golf Team Championships – to create 11 days of exhilarating sporting action. At the same time Berlin will host the European Athletics Championships completing the line-up for the first edition of the European Championships.

More than 3,000 of the best athletes on the continent will compete in Glasgow and Scotland during the Championships and attendances across all sports are expected to be in the region of 250,000. It will be the biggest sporting event held in Scotland since the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The sporting action will take place across 12 venues in Glasgow and Scotland including Glasgow’s iconic SSE Hydro (Gymnastics), Edinburgh’s Royal Commonwealth Pool (Diving), Strathclyde Country Park (Rowing and Triathlon) in North Lanarkshire and Gleneagles PGA Centenary Course (Golf) in Perth & Kinross.

A number of free events — including the Cycling Road Race through the streets of the city and beyond, Open Water Swimming at Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park and Mountain Bike at Cathkin Braes — will also take place, giving as many people as possible the opportunity to witness sporting history on their doorsteps.

A vibrant cultural programme, with Glasgow’s George Square at its beating heart, will also run alongside the sporting action, bringing local communities across the country to life with a celebration of Scottish and Glaswegian culture. Themes from the national Year of Young People in 2018 will also run through the programme.

Glasgow 2018 Championships Director Colin Hartley said: “The moment is coming. The European Championships promises to be one of the most memorable sporting and cultural events this country has ever experienced and we want as many people as possible to come to Glasgow and Scotland to join us on this historic journey.

“Our fair and competitive pricing structure, combined with a number of high-profile free events and an exciting cultural programme, will ensure that everyone feels part of this momentous occasion and can enjoy the sport and culture and also sample our fantastic tourism offer.

“Of course our crowds are internationally renowned as some of the most passionate and welcoming in the world and I have no doubts that the Glasgow 2018 European Championships will serve to strengthen that reputation to a global audience.

“We aim to put on a truly remarkable sporting event and, along with the athletes and the sports themselves, the fans will play an important role in ensuring the first ever European Championships is a success.”
