OPINION – Glasgow's people can make the 2014 games

THE countdown is on and the excitement is building towards what will be Glasgow's biggest sporting event ever.

Venues across the city are springing up like the spectacular Hydro Arena, and the Emirates Arena in the East End, and the work to ensure the city's transport system can cope is well underway.

Now it is the chance of the people of Glasgow to step up and play their part in ensuring 2014 is remembered as the best Commonwealth Games ever.

The Games makers in London last year helped make the Olympics the success it was and next year in Glasgow will be no different.

Tens of thousands have registered and now it is time to make the formal application to play your part in whatever way possible through volunteering.

The organisers want friendly, helpful people and, if there is one thing Glasgow has in abundance, that is surely it.

People from all walks of life with a range of skills and attributes are needed, so there will be a role for everyone to apply for.

The eyes of the world will be on the city in 2014, and Glasgow will be prepared

We want to ensure we show that we are capable of putting on a show and welcoming the world to our city.
