About the Glasgow Velodrome
The Sir Chris Hoy Glasgow Velodrome was completed in 2012, well in advance of the 2014 Commonwealth Games. It was created by the highly respected leading track designer Ralf Schuermann, who is an expert in Velodrome development.
3DReid were the architects who worked with construction company Sir Robert McAlpine to produce the Velodrome that boasts a 250m track, with permanent seating for 2500 spectators and the option to temporarily increase this by a further 2000.
Owned by the The City of Glasgow the Velodrome is part of the National Indoor Sportsd Arena, which cost £100m to construct and is also home to the Commonwealth Sports Arena. This arena provides numerous sports halls, has capacity for 5000 spectators as well has media areas and conference/office facilities. On completion it will be one of the largest venues of its kind in Europe.
SportScotland and Scottish Cycling will be based at the Arena when it is completed.
