The five Para-Sports included in the Glasgow programme are Athletics, Swimming, Powerlifting, Lawn Bowls and, for the first time, Track Cycling.

Sir Philip Craven, President of the International Paralympic Committee, said:

It is tremendous news that Glasgow will host more Para-Sport events than any other previous Commonwealth Games and underlines the growth and popularity of Para-Sport at all levels. To have 22 medal events included in the Games in 2014, just two years after London, will ensure that Commonwealth athletes can continue to perform on the big stage in front of thousands of spectators.
