Glasgow has been successful in its bid to host the athletics+Indoor+Championships'>2019 European Athletics Indoor Championships.

The Scottish city – which hosted the Commonwealth Games in 2014 – beat competition from the Dutch city of Apeldoorn, Minsk in Belarus and Polish town Torun.

The event will be staged in Glasgow’s Emirates Arena, which held the Indoor Grand Prix earlier this year and the British Athletics International Match from 2013 to 2015. Glasgow last hosted the European Athletics Indoor Championships in 1990.

More than 600 athletes from 50 European Athletics Member Federations will participate in the three-day event.

British Athletics chief executive Niels de Vos said the announcement was “great news for British sport” and another feather in the cap for Glasgow after hosting the Commonwealth Games two years ago.

In fact, the successful bid caps an impressive few days for the city after it was named as one of the top five sporting cities in the world at the SportBusiness Ultimate Sport City Awards, with £200m (US$291.5m, €258.1m) spent on the building and improvement of sporting facilities in the past few years.

Glasgow will also host the inaugural European Championships in 2018, as well as the Badminton World Cup a year earlier.

Scotland is getting used to hosting a huge variety of top sporting events and to be able to add the European Athletics Indoor Championships in 2019 to the list really is fantastic,” added Nigel Holl, chief executive of Scottish Athletics. “We know the Emirates Arena is a cracking venue for indoor athletics.”
