Most people of my age remember Meadowbank Stadium hosting the Commonwealth Games of 1986 – I’m glad to say I don’t remember 1970. The stadium is very much in use today and is used by many different sports. The stadium also hosts a very popular annual fireworks event to celebrate Guy Fawkes night.
If you are coming to compete at Meadowbank Stadium, or are coming to watch events, then please find below a list of excellent hotels and apartments near by.
