The Emirates Arena will celebrate its third year of hosting world-class athletics, as the Sainsbury’s Glasgow International Match returns to Glasgow on Saturday 24 January.

Just over six months on from the Commonwealth Games held in the city, the biggest names in athletics will line up on the track and field in the first major event of the indoor season.

In 2014, a sell-out crowd witnessed victories from European 100m Champion James Dasaolu, who stormed to victory in the 60m, while fans favourite Kim Collins staged an impressive victory in the 150m. The GB & NI men’s 4x400m team were also on fine form recording a stadium record and seeing off the Olympic Champions Bahamas in the process.

39 year old Bernard Lagat showed age is just a number winning the 3000m, with European Indoor Champion Holly Bleasdale taking the plaudits in the pole vault and Richard Browne in the T44 60m.

The Sainsbury’s Glasgow International Match also saw breath-taking displays from the Scottish contingent with Guy Learmonth, Laura Muir, Chris O’Hare and Libby Clegg all recording victories to the delight of the home crowd
