Sports Arena and Velodrome reaches major milestone 

Proposals for the National Indoor Sports Arena and Velodrome, the centerpiece of the 2014 Commonwealth Games, have received full planning permission from Glasgow City Council. The design team is led by Sport Concepts with 3DReid. The project also includes a community sports hall, offices, function suite, café, four external 5-a-side pitches, car parking and external 1km cycle track.

Councillor Archie Graham, executive member for the Commonwealth Games, said: "Gaining planning permission for the National Indoor Sports Arena and Velodrome means another major milestone in the Commonwealth Games journey has been reached.

“NISA will be a world-class building providing not only a venue for some of the events at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, but also superb community sports facilities and a lasting legacy for Glasgow and Scotland.

“The development will be Scotland’s principal major indoor sports venue for training and event purposes, and by combining three major sports venues, NISA, Velodrome and Community Leisure Centre, into one building, it will form one of the largest indoor sports venues in the UK and internationally.”
