Glasgow Hosting Festival Of Sport Promotes 2018 Youth Olympic Bid

Glasgow will be welcoming the world’s best young track cyclists and netball players for what will be a month-long festival of sport in August. The 113 million pound Emirates Arena will host both the 2013 Junior Track World Championships and 2013 World Youth Netball Championships as part of its international sporting events program.

Glasgow 2018 organizers have confirmed that Culture and Education Programmes will be introduced at both world championships.

Should Glasgow host the 2018 Youth Games, the bid committee says that the city’s status as a European cultural powerhouse and the fact its young people speak more than 110 languages, would be utilized to make sure the Culture and Education Programme also empowered young people across the Globe.

Glasgow 2018 bid director Paul Bush said, “we are looking forward to an incredible summer of Sport in Glasgow with two world championships taking place. Not only will the events showcase some of the world’s best young sports stars, they will also highlight the city’s commitment to enriching the lives of young athletes through exciting new Culture and Education programs.
