2 Years To Go, games partners

Clan 2014 has the Organising Committee at its heart, supported by the following groups:

Games partners

Our Games partners have substantial influence over the success of the Games through funding and governance. They are the Scottish Government, Glasgow City Council, Commonwealth Games Federation and Commonwealth Games Scotland. 

Scottish Government (SG)

The SG has full legislative competence across a wide range of devolved areas. These include the vast majority of policy matters (including sports) necessary to host the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The SG will provide 80% of the public funding for the Games. It will ensure the delivery of major infrastructure projects already planned in areas such as transport.

It will introduce legislation to the Scottish Parliament to ensure compliance with all aspects of the requirements set out by the Commonwealth Games Federation. It has overall responsibility for the security of the Games and for the planning of Scotland-wide legacy benefits.

Glasgow City Council (GCC)

GCC will provide 20% of the public funding of the Games. This will ensure the delivery of major infrastructure projects, including transport.

GCC has responsibility for the design and construction of the Athletes’ Village and ensuring long-term legacy benefits for Glasgow in areas that include social, health, regeneration, environmental and economic agendas. It will provide a programme of related cultural events in the lead-up to and during the period of the Games. It will also ensure additional cleaning of the city.

Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF)

The CGF is the custodian of the Commonwealth Games with responsibility for establishing Games-wide requirements and standards. It has final-approval authority for all Games arrangements and provides advice and support to the Organising Committee (OC) and related agencies through the CGF Coordination Committee and the Commonwealth Games Knowledge Management Programme (CGKMP).

The CGF oversees the conducting of the Games and ensures their appropriate delivery in partnership with the OC. Finally, it assists in the management of the Games constituents’ expectations.

Commonwealth Games Scotland (CGS)

CGS is the host Commonwealth Games Association for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. It is a signatory to the Host City Contract and is represented on the Glasgow 2014 Ltd Board.

CGS is also the national sporting organisation charged with entering a Scottish team in the Commonwealth Games and Commonwealth Youth Games every two years across 71 other Commonwealth countries, territories and dependencies. It is the responsibility of CGS to select, prepare, outfit and transport the Scottish Team for each Games: under its auspices, the respective Scottish Sport Governing Bodies (SGBs) ensure that Scottish athletes meet the requisite standards for team selection in order to compete and perform at world-class level.

Each Games Team is managed by a volunteer appointed by CGS and supported by its office staff and contracted media & public relations professional support.

The Games Council consists of representatives of the 26 sports in the Commonwealth Games programme, from which the Host City selects up to 17 sports for each Games.


Our stakeholders are individuals or organisations that are subject to, provide, or have an interest or involvement in decisions that impact on the success of the Games.


Our advocates are individuals or organisations that indirectly support the Games through testimony, volunteering or building public awareness and support.

We have created this structure to map out who we will communicate and engage with in the organisation of the Games, as well as who will be communicating and engaging with the OC.

We are currently in the process of determining who the people and organisations are that make up the Games community. We will progress this with a communications and engagement plan to best involve the community in the Games. By working in partnership with the Glasgow 2014 Community we hope to raise the profile of the Games and engage the whole of Scotland.
