Heriot-Watt University, in partnership with Edinburgh City Council, has been shortlisted in the bidding to host the National Performance Centre for Sport (NPCS) against Dundee and Stirling.
Our aim is to reach 6000 pledges of public support by the final bid deadline of next Friday and you can play a crucial role in helping us to reach that target.
The desire is to create a world class sporting facility that will prepare Scottish athletes for competition on the world stage. If the bid is successful, it will result in better sports facilities for Edinburgh and the local community – putting the city at the centre of sports development in Scotland.
Recently, Scottish sporting figures, Sir Chris Hoy, Gavin Hastings and Michael Stewart, also came out in support of the city’s bid and gave their backing on the Go Edinburgh 2016 pledge page .
The Scottish Government will be investing £25m in the facility and a decision on the winning bid is expected later in the summer.
