TEAM Scotland have revealed their snazzy parade outfits for the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

The tartan attire was revealed at the team's pre-Games preparation camp in Glasgow as excitement builds for the two-week event starting on Thursday, July 28.

The opening ceremony will be held on that day at the Alexander Stadium.

Both men’s and women’s outfits have been designed by Scottish fashion designer Siobhan Mackenzie, and feature a scaled-up bespoke tartan design with colours synonymous with both Team Scotland and Birmingham 2022.

The tartan was woven by the Lochcarron Mill in Selkirk, with all other components manufactured locally and using traditional methods where possible.

Swimmer Ross Murdoch, who won the gold medal in the 200m breaststroke at the 2014 Games in Glasgow, said: “I love the outfit”

“This is my third Commonwealth Games with Team Scotland and it’s always a proud moment to receive the kilt – it puts an extra spring in your step when you are representing the country wearing it.

“There’s been a real buzz around Team Camp – everyone is excited to get down to Birmingham and compete in what is close to a home Games for us.”

Para-athletics wheelchair racer Sammi Kinghorn MBE added: “The design is stunning.

“Opening ceremonies are special nights for athletes, and it feels like a lot of time and attention has gone into making sure we are looking the part going out for the parade.

“There are a lot of nice touches and detail across the design, and I can’t wait for that moment at the Opening Ceremony when we all go out together wearing the outfit.”

Scots will be able to get behind dozens of athletes representing the nation across the fortnight including the likes of athletics stars Laura Muir, Eilish McColgan and Jemma Reekie, swimmers Murdoch and Duncan Scott, and the ever-successful lawn bowls team.

Designer Siobhan Mackenzie said: “It’s such an honour to be involved in the design of the outfits.

“We consulted with the committee and athletes’ panel to make sure it was something they were going to be happy in, and we’ve been delighted with the reaction we’ve had from the athletes so far.

“I played around with the scale of the tartan, which is the main aesthetic feature of the final pieces, and the devil’s always in the detail, with little touchers across  – buckles, buttons, linings and stitching colour.

“It’s a contemporary take on tradition and, importantly, is made in Scotland using traditional methods”
