Glasgow has set its sights on hosting the 2019 European Indoor Athletics Championships as Scotland hopes to continue its recent trend of bringing high quality international sporting competitions to the country.
The Emirates was home to the badminton and track cycling during the 2014 Commonwealth Games and has hosted the Glasgow International Match, organised by UK Athletics, since 2013.
Along with Britain, Belarus, Bulgaria, The Netherlands, Poland and Portugal have expressed a desire to host the European Indoor Championships in 2019.
Glasgow's bid to host the event will join that of the 2017 figure skating World Championships and 2016 Olympic swimming trials.
The Tollcross International will likely be the venue of choice for the swimming trial with the venue due to hold the International Paralympic Committee's European Championships next year and the 2018 European Championships.
European Athletics opened the bidding process for a number of its key international events in September, with meets from 2017 to 2020 up for grabs for potential host cities.
Should Glasgow bid's to host the 2019 Indoor Championships be successful, it will follow in the footsteps of Prague and Belgrade, who are due to hold the events in 2015 and 2017 respectively.
