Glasgow 2014 appoints Pitch as UK communications agency

Glasgow 2014 has appointed Pitch to help share the excitement of the Commonwealth Games with audiences throughout the UK.

As one of the UK’s leading sports communications consultancies with a wealth of experience delivering high-profile campaigns for sponsors, rights holders, governing bodies and major international sports events such as London 2012, Pitch will work in collaboration with the communications and marketing team at Glasgow 2014.

Pitch will play a key role in sharing the rich diversity of stories and opportunities offered by the world-class sporting platform that is next year’s Commonwealth Games.

Core campaigns in the run-up to the Games will include supporting Glasgow 2014’s Ticketing Programme which kicks off with the publication of the ticketing brochure on July 23 which is exactly One Year to Go until the Opening Ceremony. The formal application phase for tickets launches on August 19, 2013.

Gordon Arthur, Chief Communications Officer, Glasgow 2014 said:

“We are delighted to have Pitch as part of Glasgow 2014’s marketing communications team.

Pitch brings considerable experience from their work on a range of leading UK and international sporting events and we look forward to working with them to maximise all the opportunities presented by the world-class festival of sport and culture which will takes place in Glasgow and Scotland next year.”

Henry Chappell, Chief Executive, Pitch said: 

“Glasgow 2014 will be one of the highlights of the sporting calendar next year, and we’re thrilled to be handed a major role in helping to deliver what looks set to be the best ever Commonwealth Games.”
