Event Scotland: “We Are Turning The Hosting Model On Its Head”
By Community | August 21, 2019
Following the co-hosting of the first-ever European Championships multi-sport event last year in Glasgow last year, Scotland will once again break new ground as the location of the inaugural UCI Cycling World Championships in August 2023. The event, to be held in locations around the country, will bring together 13 UCI World Championships for different cycling disciplines in one unprecedented extravaganza. At SportAccord 2019, Paul Bush, Chief Operating Officer, Event Scotland, speaks to iSportconnect TV about how the new event reflects an innovative approach to hosting in Scotland which brings big-picture policy and societal impact issues to the fore.
Glasgow and Scotland have an enviable track record in international cycling hosting annual rounds of the Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup and the 2007 UCI Mountain Bike & Trials World Championships in Fort William, and the Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup as well as the cycling competitions of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
