Glasgow Life is a charity which delivers cultural, sporting and learning activities on behalf of Glasgow City Council. In doing so we aim to make a positive impact on individuals, the communities in which they live and the city as a whole. We deliver a range of services including arts, music, sports, events and festivals, libraries, community development and learning programmes. In addition, we manage 167 buildings including cultural icons like Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, and sports facilities such as the Emirates Arena and Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome and the Tollcross International Swimming Centre.
Glasgow Sport operates one of the most extensive leisure operations in the UK with 32 leisure facilities and a significant outdoor leisure estate. Its dedicated Sports Development and Physical Activity Team promote sport from grassroots level through to elite athletes.

Next year, Glasgow will welcome the LGT World Men’s Curling Championship and UEFA EURO 2020 as the city looks to host other events to inspire local and international audiences alike.
