Scottish Government set to begin consultation process over Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games advertising restrictions

The Scottish Government will this week open a consultation around marketing restrictions during the period that the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games will run next year.

The consultation will take comments from the public ahead of drawing up rules around advertising during the Games next year, which will attempt to protect official sponsors of the Games and block any attempts at ambush marketing.

Advertising the Consultation, a Scottish Government advert stated: "The consultation will seek views on the scope of advertising activity and trading which we propose to regulate, the areas within which the regulations will apply (the 'event zones') and the time periods during which the regulations will be in force (the 'event periods')."

The consolation period will last for a period of just under three months, from 15 May through until 7 August.

Statements from both The Scottish Government and the Glasgow Commonwealth Games Organising Committee are expected this week.

Earlier today the organising committee announced its 'family friendly' ticket pricing strategy.
