With capacities ranging from the 3,000 seat SEC Armadillo to the 13,000 seat SSE Hydro, supported by a combination of flexible space in the SEC Centre, our venues are perfectly positioned to stage most sporting events.
Over the years, our sporting audience have enjoyed events such as Nitro Circus and Arenacross, Premier League Darts, Boxing, WWE and Harlem Globetrotters. We also introduced tennis to our sports portfolio in 2016 with ‘Andy Murray Live’, a charity tennis event.
In 2014 the SEC had its ultimate test as a key host venue for the 20th Glasgow Commonwealth Games, proving our versatility in staging sport. With weightlifting in the SEC Armadillo, boxing, judo, wrestling and netball in the SEC Centre and The SSE Hydro taking centre stage for Artistic and Rhythmic Gymnastics, we are proud to have played such a prominent role in what the organisers hailed as ‘the best Games ever’.
Building on this success, the venue played host to the 2015 FIG World Gymnastics Championships. Comprising 11 days of intense competition, this event was broadcast globally with the venue proving as a spectacular feature, allowing us to earn our place on the world stage. We are looking forward to 2018, when the venue is set to host the Artistic Gymnastics for the European Sports Championships.
With a proven track record in staging sport along with an audience that loves competition, we are the perfect choice for your sporting event.
