Aled Davies, SSE’s Welsh Home Nations ambassador, has proudly unveiled a giant Commonwealth Games #Go interactive installation in Glasgow.

Davies was delighted to have a chance to show his allegiance, stating: “Not only am I team captain for Wales, I am also Wales’ biggest fan and so to be able to show my support for my country is amazing. Thanks to SSE, fans from across the Commonwealth can head down to Glasgow Green and get behind their own nation.”

Fans who come down to Glasgow Green will be able to select their team and create their own unique ‘selfie’ displaying their nation's #Go message. A team of photographers are on hand to capture the images and each photo taken will also be live tweeted, meaning each tweet will contribute to your nation's total for the SSE GoGlasgow Leaderboard.

The technology will analyse every tweet around the 71 competing countries, and register a score for each nation-specific hashtag of support used. Tweet using your nation’s hashtag – #GoScotland, #GoEngland, #GoWales or #GoNI – and the winning nation will receive extra funding for up-and-coming athletes from the SSE Next Generation programme.

The structure will be up for the duration of the games and we encourage anyone who is coming along to the games to get themselves to Glasgow Green to get a picture in front of it and get behind their home nation.

Also, keep an eye out over the next few days for details of other Home Nation athletes coming down to meet fans and to take their photos in front of #Go sign or visit @SSE for all the latest news from Glasgow.
