Glasgow win bid to host 2012 Euro Cup

Europe

The Scottish Australian Rules Football League has won the rights to host the 2012 EuroCup in Glasgow for the first time, narrowly winning the vote over a bid from Randers, Denmark.

The Scots have a record of hosting international tournaments, such as the long-running Haggis Cup, though this will be the biggest event on Scottish soil to date.

A statement from the AFL Europe read "Both Denmark and Scotland are to be commended for the quality of bids put forward, and we hope that it is a sign of the event going from strength to strength."

More information will appear on the AFL Europe website in the near future.
