Yorkshire athletes Jessica Ennis-Hill and Nicola Adams have been named as sporting ambassadors for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Sheffield heptathlete Ennis-Hill and Leeds boxer Adams, who both won gold at the London Olympics, have been named alongside Scots Michael Jamieson, David Carry and Allan Wells.
They will feature in a new advertising campaign from next week, when a million tickets will be released.
The campaign, which declares ‘when a city becomes an arena’, will run across cinema, bus sides and outdoor billboards. A 40-second TV advert, created by The Leigh Agency, will be aired across Scotland and the North from August 19.
Ennis-Hill said: “Having a major championships in Britain so soon after the Olympics in London is brilliant and to have the support of a crowd made up of all the home nations will really help us athletes achieve our best again.”
