This will underline Scotland’s global reputation as the perfect stage for events and is welcome news as we look to recover from the pandemic.” the First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon said.

Glasgow's Emirates Arena was also the host of a European indoor championships in 2019, five years after the city hosted the Commonwealth Games.

"World Athletics has demonstrated their confidence in the UK to host global athletics championships once again, and history has shown time and time again our ability to deliver amazing events," Ian Beattie, chair of UK Athletics said.
