Riedel Communications was appointed the official radio communications services provider for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

In the build up to Glasgow 2014, Riedel Communications will design and build a radio communications solution for use across Glasgow and in venues. It will also provide all radio handsets and radio communications accessories to be used in the lead up to and during the games.

Riedel will also provide radio communications for the Scottish route of the Queen’s Baton Relay, ensuring radio communications run smoothly as the baton makes its way through Scotland in June and July of next year.

“The ability for our team to communicate effectively around Glasgow and across a number of Games venues is essential to delivering the high-performance environment necessary for the safety and success of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games,” said Glasgow 2014 Chief Executive David Grevemberg.

The Commonwealth Games is an international, multisport event involving 71 teams of athletes from the Commonwealth of Nations. The event was first held in 1930 and takes place every four years. Glasgow 2014 will be the 20th Commonwealth Games and will be held from 23 July to 3 August. It will feature 17 sports in 11 days of competition with 261 medal events on show. The event will play host to 4,500 athletes and sell 1 million tickets, with the event aided by up to 15,000 local volunteers.
