Commonwealth Games organisers have produced a Glasgow 2014 Factsheet that outlines the history of the event, information on the participating countries and the venues for each event. There is also a Game On Scotland site that “aims to provide inspiration and learning and teaching opportunities related to Glasgow 2014 and other momentous events happening throughout Scotland in the coming years”.
