Tickets & Accreditation

There will be accreditation issued on arrival to each Athlete and Club Official (up to 2 per team, if you have 2 teams it will be 4). This will allow access to all of the relevant areas for the races.

I’m pleased to say we are able to provide tickets for you and your athletes to watch the Sainsbury’s Glasgow Grand Prix. It will be one ticket per member of the team including team staff.

The tickets will be given to you at the Club:Connect Marquee. You will exchange the accreditation passes for tickets as this point. This will allow your team to be able to watch the action as the accreditation passes will not allow access to seating areas.


There is a £250 club grant available to the winning club of each race.
