    News Scottish bid to bring World Figure Skating Championships to Glasgow in 2017

    The National Ice Skating Association (NISA) is bidding to bring one of the biggest and most prestigious annual skating events in the world to the UK for the first time in almost 20 years.

    NISA has submitted a bid in partnership with Glasgow City Council, Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, EventScotland and UK Sport to host the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2017 in Glasgow. This strong partnership is built on a wealth of major event experience and a passion for ice skating.

    A decision by the International Skating Union (ISU) is expected to be made after the organisation’s congress taking place in Dublin from 9 to 13 June.

    Bringing the World Championships to the UK would enhance the new investment that NISA is making into developing talent and growing participation.

    Yes, I'll vote for that!!!!

    Glasgow would be perfect for me!!! Just a short flight from Aldergrove to Prestwick, or a ferry from Larne to Stranraer, and I'm there in no time!!!

    And even better, the ISU congress is in Dublin!!! So, I can go down there and try to bribe the delegates to make sure it comes to Glasgow!!!

    I was gutted when I didn't get to Sheffield for Euros a couple of years ago, so this would more than make up for it.

    And hopefully by the time 2017 comes, Karly Robertson will have improved to a level where the Scottish fans will be able to properly cheer for her.

    It's just a pity that Jenna is no longer competing, as I have always wanted to hold up an Ulster flag for her...

    Wow so it's Sweden, Finland, Russia and Scotland in contention now!
    I'm rooting for Finland because it would be sooo cheap for me to go then, but Scotland would definitely be an excellent choice as well! By then Scotland will be an independent country as well (I hope)!
