    Glasgow has defeated Nigeria capital Abuja in the vote in Sri Lanka to stage the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The Scottish city won the vote by 47 to 24.

    Hampden Park will be be the centerpiece of the games hosting the track and field.

    The opening ceremony will be held at Celtic Park with the athletes village only being situated minutes from the ground.

    Ibrox will host the sevens competition which has proven to be one of the biggest attraction at the games since being introduced in 1998 when the games were held in Kuala Lumpur.

    The total cost of the games is expected to be £288 million with the majority of funding coming from the Scottish governement. Seems a tad on the conservative side considering there's still a number of venues to be built.
