14 March 2019 - Congratulations and thank you
"We have, once again, been fortunate to witness another spectacular international sporting event delivered in Glasgow and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for working with us to make the Glasgow European Athletics Indoor Championships such a phenomenal success.
Thousands of people enjoyed an incredible showcase of world-class sport with many millions tuning in to see Glasgow shine, yet again, on a global stage. None of this could have happened without your commitment and passion and we are grateful for your collaboration in making the event happen.
We witnessed spectacular sporting performances on the field-of-play, not the least Laura Muir, however, this was mirrored by world class performances by the entire team involved in delivering an overall event experience to athletes, officials, media, broadcast, spectators and guests – that was truly second to none.
I hope you have had an opportunity to have something of a rest and chance to reflect on everything that was achieved and what you have been part of. I know that European Athletics were immensely satisfied with what we delivered and for that we should all be very proud. We have collectively set the bar incredibly high for future events and, once again, shown Glasgow and Scotland in the most positive light. We’re incredibly grateful for all of your support – thank you."
