Your essential guide to buying and collecting tickets at Games Time


With over 1.1m tickets already sold, Glasgow 2014 is already confirmed as Scotland’s largest ever sporting event. Great opportunities still exist, however, for those who haven’t got round to booking in advance or want a last-minute slice of the action. The party leaves town on 3 August, so don’t miss out and book your tickets now.

Here are our three top ticketing tips:


Some seats may become available or be reallocated right up until the last moment, so keep checking the website if your preference isn’t available just now. If you definitely want to “be there”, the best availability at time of writing (23 July) is for early rounds of Badminton, Weightlifting, Boxing and morning sessions of Athletics. You can buy these tickets right now at


If you buy a ticket now for an upcoming event, don’t worry about the post. All sales are now “for collection”, so you can buy online or from the  Ticket Hotline on 0800 458 2014*, then collect the tickets at our city centre George Square Ticket Office or the Venue Ticket Office. Please note, there are no ticket offices for the Shooting, Triathlon and Cycling (Mountain) venues as there are no more tickets available for these events. To collect your tickets, all you need to do is quote your booking reference number and present the credit/debit card used to book your tickets.


You can also buy tickets on the day at the venue, if there is availability. Venue Ticket Offices open 30mins before the gates open and are scheduled to close one hour before the final session ends. For information on specific venues please visit our venue pages and download our Essential Venue Guides.

Tickets can be purchased with cash, credit card or debit card and – you can collect/purchase tickets for any sport at any venue ticket office – there are no restrictions to the sports at that venue.

Please note, the only venues that do not have ticket office facilities are Strathclyde Country Park, Cathkin Braes and Barry Buddon (as every session is sold out).
