Europe's Largest LED Screen For Glasgow 2014

A giant screen will be installed at Celtic Park as the football stadium is transformed to host the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games.

The 100-metre-wide backdrop, taking up the entire south stand, will display images of the ceremony as it unfolds on July 23. 

With a surface area of 1,020 square metres, the digital screen is said to be the largest of its kind in Europe. 

Glasgow 2014 organisers said it will play a key role in the creation of a ``dramatic, immersive visual experience'' for thousands of spectators. 

Details of the ceremony have yet to be revealed but volunteer auditions are under way. 

Head of ceremonies David Zolkwer said: ``The building of a screen of this scale - running the entire length of Celtic Park's south stand - is going to add a really audacious dimension to Glasgow 2014's opening ceremony. 

``Both through sheer spectacle and as a wonderful story-telling device, our goal is for the screen to be a wow factor - a fantastic augmentation to the story we are telling our live audience in the stadium and the many hundreds of millions of people watching on television around the world.'' 

Scotland's national football stadium, Hampden, is also being transformed ahead of the Games. 

The surface has been raised almost two metres on a bed of metal stilts to accommodate a running track and athletics field. 

Tickets are still available for the opening ceremony.
