More than two-thirds of Scots believe the 2014 Commonwealth Games will bring lasting benefits to the host city and Scotland as whole, according to a poll.
Some 68% of people quizzed said the high-profile sporting event would be good for Glasgow and the rest of the country.
A similar number said the games will regenerate a deprived part of Scotland, while almost three quarters said they will provide “sporting inspiration” for youngsters.
Less than half of those polled, however, felt the event would inspire more people to get active.
The Panelbase survey was carried out for The Sunday Times and Real Radio Scotland and published ahead of games tickets going on sale today.
The figures show that 20% of people believe the games will benefit Glasgow but not Scotland as a whole. Just 4% said they would be no good for the city or the country.
Some 74% of the 1,001 people questioned agreed Glasgow 2014 would provide sporting inspiration for young Scots, while 51% said it would bring greater sporting success for Scotland for years to come.
But not so many people were confident about the games’ ability to bring lasting health benefits.
Just 17% said the games would make personally them more physically active to some extent, with three-quarters believe it would make no difference.
Meanwhile, the Commonwealth secretary general has reportedly said Glasgow is “more than ready” to host the games next year.
Kamalesh Sharma told BBC Scotland: “From what I saw, it is more than ready; I think both from the aspect of preparation and readiness, and also from the aspect of legacy.”
