Glasgow 2014: How did you #PlayYourPart?
From the 23rd of July to the 3rd of August, athletes from 71 nations & territories came to Scotland for a chance to compete for a medal at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

With 14 venues hosting 17 different sports, from aquatics to athletics and weightlifting to wrestling, the Games proved to be some of the best ever and we were there as an Official Partner, playing our part at this world-class event.

Keeping the Games moving

We supplied over 1,120 vehicles to keep the Games moving. With special decals marking them out, these cars were hard to miss on the streets of this famous Scottish city.

In the run up to the Opening Ceremony, we participated in the Queen’s Baton Relay, escorting the baton and its team of baton bearers across the length and breadth of Scotland. Some of the fleet including Focus, Mondeo and Galaxy were used to ensure that Glasgow 2014 staff were able to support the transportation needs of their athletes and officials throughout the Games.

A fleet of Mondeo estates were amongst the support cars, travelling at speed behind the peloton in the Cycling road races whilst a number of new Focus Battery Electric Vehicles were busy throughout the Games working within the competition venues and keeping emissions to a minimum.

Ford Athlete Ambassadors

During the Games eight young competing athletes from 4 of the Home Nations carried out their roles as Ford Athlete Ambassadors and helped support our #PlayYourPart campaign inviting everyone to get behind the Games.
