The British Judo Association is to hold all of its major inter-national contests in Glasgow from this year.
The first will be the 2013 Glasgow European Open for men – the first time the competition has been held north of the border.
It will take place on October 19 and 20 at the £113million Emirates Arena.
The spectacle, being hosted by Glasgow Life and supported by EventScotland and UK Sport, alternates each year between a men's and women's event.
As a key event on the international circuit the event, licensed by the European Judo Union and International Judo Federation, will feature the sport's leading male judoka, with London 2012 Olympic champions and Glasgow 2014 Common-wealth Games hopefuls all poised to compete.
Glasgow is also the proposed host city for the 2015 European Judo Championships.
Chairman of Glasgow Life, Councillor Archie Graham, said: "Since opening its doors last October the Emirates Arena has played host to a range of inter-national events and we are looking forward to adding the Glasgow European Open to that list.
"As one of the world's leading sporting cities we have a proud track record of delivering events and developing sport at all levels.
"October's European Open will see judo make its debut at the venue and will showcase what the city has to offer as part of its bid for the 2015 European Judo Championships."
British Judo chief executive officer Andrew Scoular said he was "very excited" to be bringing these events to Glasgow.
He added: "Through-out our city tender process Glasgow Life and EventScotland showed a strong commitment to host British Judo's major international events.
"We are very excited about working together with Glasgow Life, EventScotland and UK Sport to bid for the 2015 European Championships.
"Hosting our major events in Glasgow will help us develop our sport in Scotland and build strong ties with the local community.
"I have no doubt that Glasgow will provide British Judo with a fantastic base for our major events."
