The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome is one of the parts of the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, which opened a few years ago, in 2012. A major sportive event that held at this venue was the 2014 Commonwealth Games. This major competition was, in fact, the very reason for which the facility was constructed. The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome has a capacity of 2000 people and bears the name of a gold-medal winning Scottish cyclist. The venue was also used during the 2012-13 UCI Track Cycling World Cup.
