That will explain the Closing Ceremony then....

BBC Trailer for the 2014 Commonwealth Games https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m10UoEGE2GU

Marking my 1000th post here in this thread

Colours look alright, if not a tiny bit boring.

I suspect that there has been a conscious effort not to be too similar to that 2012 event which I dare not name.

Also, on reflection- the colours are roughly as in the tartan, which makes sense.

Jessica Mauboy to perform during the handover ceremony from Glasgow to Gold Coast!

JESSICA Mauboy will turn 25 in front of a televised audience of one billion people when she performs at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Flag Handover Ceremony in August.

Yesterday Mauboy was announced as the star of a 10-minute segment to feature as part of the formal “handing over” of the Commonwealth Games from Glasgow to the Gold Coast.

You’re in safe hands, the team producing The Opening & Closing Ceremonies of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games are super experienced, combing talents from across Scotland with global expertise. Glasgow 2014 are working with Jack Morton Worldwide, an international events company, who also produced the Ceremonies for Manchester 2002, Melbourne 2006 as well as the Athens Olympics and the 2010 World Cup.

I'm so excited for Glasgow 2014. Any news on who's directing the OC?

Didn't you ask this question a while back and scotguy answered it then as well?

Excellent! :)

:) If they do release a bottle with the crest on it, purchasing and burying it in the basement until NZ hosts them.

Since it's getting mentioned elsewhere.

Who are the main sponsors...ie Cars, Airlines, Telecoms, shippers, clothing etc.

I have been asked by one of my friends who works at the organising committee if I would be a team attache for one of the countries. i must say the offer is very tempting as I would receive infinity access to all sports and venues. But I only arrive in the city a week before the games start so may be a bit tight, and may require alot more work than I might want to do whilst on holiday. What do you guys think?

Go for it!

It's a once in a lifetime chance and opportunity. And it's great experience, both personally and to have on your resume if you ever want to get involved in some sporting event in some capacity again.
