Uniforms unveiled for Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games volunteers

0 0
Glasgow 2014 have unveiled the sparkling new uniforms that will be worn by the 15,000 Commonwealth Games volunteers commonly referred to as clyde-siders.

Outdoor clothing manufacturer Trespass have created the special uniforms which consist of a red polo shirt, grey trousers, red and white soft shell jacket, red cagoule and grey hat.

The clyde-siders will also be given matching bags, umbrellas and a water bottle supplied by A.G.Barr. 

The Technical Officials at the Commonwealth Games will wear uniforms similar in style to the clyde-siders but they will be blue and green rather than red, which is more suitable for the Field of Play.

Glasgow 2014 mascot Clyde has also been given his own bespoke uniform to match that of the workforce.

"I think the uniform is terrific,” said Glasgow 2014 Chairman Lord Smith. 

"I am delighted that Clyde has his!

"I look forward to seeing the workforce wear it with pride in our venues across Glasgow and Scotland.”

A record breaking 50,811 people applied for up to 15,000 coveted clyde-sider roles with Glasgow 2014.

The entire workforce has come together from across Scotland and the UK. 

The workforce will have Games Time roles as diverse as spectator services, press operations, anti-doping, protocol and transport but collectively will be the smiling face of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

"The clyde-siders are at the heart of the Games,” said Scotland’s Commonwealth Games Minister Shona Robison.

"Their warm welcome, smile and enthusiasm will help make these the greatest Games ever.

"I look forward to seeing clyde-siders in their uniforms, designed and supplied by a Glasgow business, becoming a familiar, friendly sight this summer.”

The Glasgow 2014 uniforms have been designed by outdoor clothing manufacturer Trespass.
