4J Studios Indoor Open Series will host eight days of competition

Tuesday 8th December 2020

Enter online for Saturday 9 January (U17, U20, Seniors at moment)

scottishathletics are pleased to launch the 4J Studios Indoor Open series – with a number of indoor opportunities in Glasgow early in 2021.

The Emirates Arena will host no fewer than seven days of open graded competition, with a further day of competition specifically for U11/U13 age group athletes very much in the planning, too.

All events will be conducted within Scottish Government guidelines for indoor events and with Covid-19 protocols in place.

They will also be subject to Scottish Government travel guidelines at the time. Refunds will be issued if athletes are barred from competing because of pandemic restrictions.

That means competition ‘bubbles’ will be in operation and unfortunately no spectators are allowed – with no access for parents/guardians or coaches.

A lot of detailed planning work has been taking place in order to create a ‘flow’ system through the Emirates Arena and additional space is being used for warm-ups.

The 4J Studios Indoor Open Series begins on Saturday 9 January and entries are now open online (for certain age groups as we operate a staggered system).

It is one event per athlete at each Indoor Open and with scottishathletics facing very significant venue costs it is £12 per entry. The events are ‘closed’ which means only scottishathletics members can compete.

We would highlight that we expect to face a heavy financial deficit on the Open Series but are determined to create competition opportunities despite the pandemic.
