The Opening Ceremony will be held on Pitch 1 at the National Hockey Centre, Glasgow Green on Saturday 19th August 2017, starting at approximately 15;15.
Due to the scale of the tournament, some matches will have already been played on the Saturday, prior to the “Opening Ceremony”. The Opening Ceremony will therefore start as soon as the match on Pitch 2 at Glasgow Green (TTO65 LX Red versus LX White) has been completed (approximately 15:15).
As soon as the game ends, all those wishing to participate in the ceremony are asked to gather on Pitch 2 under their National Flag. At approximately 15:30, teams will parade onto Pitch 1.
The ceremony is expected to last approximately one hour, and will include some traditional Scottish music along with some short welcome speeches.
