Description:

The venue for the hockey competition as the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games will open in July 2013.

The site is on Kings Drive and sits beside the Glasgow Green Football Centre.

This is the last of the venues to be completed by Glasgow City Council that will be used during the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, and will be ready for use by the public more than one year before the Games begin on 23 July 2014.

The main building of the Glasgow National Hockey Centre has 500 seats in its grandstand, although there will be 5,000 seats there during the Games, with a further 4,500 spectator places created as a result of temporary stands erected for the hockey competition.  It will feature two new FIH standard water-based floodlit synthetic hockey pitches, with changing accommocation for players and officials, to serve as the hockey competition and warm-up facilities during the Games.  The cost of the project is £5.5m.

Current status:

The facility is due to open in July 2013.
