Support a 2nd team

Support a 2nd Team is a programme of events, led by sportscotland, providing an opportunity to create partnerships with nations and territories participating in the Commonwealth Games and to support them through their journey to the Games and beyond. It has been developed as part of a wider Games Legacy, to connect local authorities in Scotland with the cultures of Commonwealth countries and further develop links with Commonwealth regions. Local partners are being encouraged to get behind another Commonwealth country and cheer them on.

In an education context, schools and others are encouraged to consider how they can link their work on the Games to supporting their chosen 2nd team. If you’re choosing another nation to explore in more detail, why not make it your 2nd team? A full list of the linked Commonwealth nations and territories, alongside Scottish local authorities, can be downloaded below.

You can find out more information about the full programme on the sportscotland website.
