Commonwealth Games trading regulations

The Scottish Government is consulting on draft regulations that will ban unauthorised street trading, advertising, ambush marketing and busking at 17 Commonwealth Games venues.

Before and during sporting events at next year’s Commonwealth Games, anyone involved in unauthorised trading or advertising will be liable to have merchandise seized or be fined up to £20,000 upon conviction.

The Scottish Government’s consultation sets out proposals for the controls, detailed maps of the event zones affected and the period of proposed restrictions. The majority of businesses will continue operating as normal, while businesses outwith the regulations will be able to apply to Glasgow 2014 for authorisation to advertise or trade during the Games period.

Enforcement will be by designated and experienced officers appointed by Glasgow 2014, drawn from local authorities.

Similar legislation regulated street trading and advertising at the London 2012 Olympic Games, including football events at Hampden.
