Scottish Officials will be represented in force at the World Indoors 2024 in Glasgow.

Thousands of tickets have been snapped up for the sessions at the familiar venue of the Emirates Arena on March 1-3.

And we’re delighted that our superb qualified scottishathletics Officials will have a significant representation within the overall cohort who will make the World Indoors happen.

A team of 95 has been put together by World Athletics and we’re pleased to say that 25 of those are Scottish!

Furthermore, looking through the list it is noticeable how many of our Officials have senior roles within the team.

‘We congratulate all the Scottish Officials selected for the World Indoors,’ said Alistair Aitchison, Convenor of our Officials Commission.

‘It’s a great honour for these dedicated volunteers to be selected for an event like this.

‘When you look at the representation in population terms then I think we can be really pleased and I do feel this reflects on the confidence UK Athletics have in Scottish Officials.

‘The cohort of Scots includes a number of folk with experience of a number of major events and some involved at this level of international athletics for the first time.

‘No matter the age and stage, it will be exciting for all those involved and of course the Emirates Arena venue is so very familiar, which really helps when delivering a big event.

‘We wish each and every one of them the very best for the World Indoors in Glasgow.’
