Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games
We’re proud to be the Official Professional Advisor to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. The Games will be the UK’s next great international sporting spectacle, and we’re delighted to play our part in planning for its lasting legacy.
The Games will see over 6,500 athletes, officials from 17 sports, and over one million ticket-holders converge on 14 venues and 3 precincts over 11 days of competition, making it the largest multi-sport event ever to be held in Scotland, and one of the largest in the UK. With competitors from across the diverse Commonwealth nations, it will be an international event watched by over one billion people around the world.
A unique opportunity
As Official Professional Advisor, we’re working with Glasgow 2014 to tackle the many complex financial, logistical and organisational challenges of staging the Games.
We’re providing world-class professional services support, including tax advice, internal audit, and advisory services, to help deliver Glasgow 2014's vision of an outstanding, athlete-centred, sports-focused Commonwealth Games.
But the Games are so much more than a great sporting contest. They will have a profound impact on the local economy and society, from new jobs and skills, to whole area regeneration. And they will be an international showcase for the UK’s cultural, sporting and business vitality, creating new contacts and conversations across the Commonwealth.
As a sponsor, we’re excited about the many opportunities to involve our clients, our employees and local communities in the Games experience.
And we’re inspired by what the Games stand for: the highest performing teams, from across the world, coming together to create something truly transformational.
