Details of the Queen's Baton Relay – which will see the baton and a message from the Queen go through all the participating Commonwealth countries and territories– will be unveiled, revealing the final route it will take around Scotland and into Glasgow for the opening ceremony.
Organisers are also working on details about who will carry the baton, as well as Scottish and Glaswegian themed designs for the baton. It will have a special focus on young people.
David Grevemberg, chief executive of the 2014 Games, said: "The Queen's Baton Relay can create some magical and memorable international and domestic moments, from the Sydney Harbour Bridge to royal receptions on the Pacific islands, to underwater post offices in Vanuatu, to the mountains in the Highlands."
The relay will begin at Buckingham Palace, where the Queen will place her message to the athletes in the specially designed baton.
It is then passed to the first relay runner and its journey officially begins. The baton will then travel for about nine months, before returning to Scotland 40 days before the Opening Ceremony on July 23.
It will visit all 32 council areas in the country, before coming to a stop at Celtic Park for the start of the Games.
It is that route that will be revealed later today.
When the baton is received at Celtic Park it will be opened and the Queen's message will be read to the athletes by Her Majesty or her representative, declaring the Games officially open.
Teams from 71 nations and territories, representing one third of the world's population, will compete in 17 sports, ranging from athletics to gymnastics at Glasgow 2014.
A total of 6500 athletes and officials will live in the Commonwealth Games Athletes' Village in the East end over 11 days of competition, which will end on August 3.
