What is it?

In the summer of 2018 a new era in world sport will get underway as Glasgow and Berlin host the inaugural European Championships — an exciting new multi-sport event bringing together some of the continent's leading sports including the existing European Championships for Athletics, Aquatics, Cycling, Gymnastics, Rowing and Triathlon with a new Golf Team Championships.

To be staged every four years starting in August 2018, the European Championships will be an 11-day celebration of world-class sport watched by a global television audience of up to 1.03 billion.

Glasgow and Scotland will host six sports - Aquatics, Cycling, Golf, Gymnastics, Rowing and Triathlon while Berlin hosts Athletics.

When will it take place?

The event will take place from 2-12 August 2018 across 12 venues in Glasgow and Scotland with a Cultural Festival running alongside the sporting events.

Will there be impacts to my area?

The Glasgow 2018 European Championships will be smaller in scale than Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games however some of the events will have an impact on daily arrangements for residents and businesses around the time of the Championships, but please be assured that we will minimise the scale of the impact.

To facilitate the thrilling road races it will be necessary to temporarily restrict access to a number of local roads. Glasgow 2018 is working closely with other partner local authorities, emergency services, care providers including Cordia and other community stakeholders to ensure local services operate with minimal disruption.

Glasgow 2018 is engaging with communities and service providers early so any anticipated changes to normal business can be communicated clearly and quickly to local residents and businesses so they can plan ahead effectively.
