The countdown to the Games is over!

After 7 years of planning, the countdown to the Commonwealth Games is over. Tonight’s Opening Ceremony at Celtic Park, Glasgow, will welcome the 6000 participating athletes who will be representing 71 nations in total. More than 2000 people will take part in this evening’s celebration, which will be broadcast to more than 1.5 billion people around the world.

We would like to wish all of the young people on the BP Young Leaders Programme 2014, who have been on an incredible journey over the last 9 months, the best of luck as they begin their volunteering roles at the Games and put into practice all they’ve learnt over this time.
