The UCI, cycling's world governing body, has announced that the new Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow, Scotland will host a round of the 2012-13 UCI Track Cycling World Cup.
The round will take place between November 16 and 18 and act as a qualifying event for the 2013 UCI Track World Championships in Belarus.
The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, built for the 2014 Commonwealth Games and named after the Scottish quadruple Olympic gold medallist, is set to open in October.
Glasgow will be the third UK city to host a round of the UCI Track Cycling World Cup series, after London, which staged an event earlier this year at the new Olympic Velodrome, and Manchester in 2011.
The UCI said it "is enthusiastic to be hosting an event in the UK once more, especially in the brand new velodrome in Glasgow as the first International event organised in this magnificent facility."
Paul Bush, chief operating officer of EventScotland, the country’s events organisation, added: "It is testament to Scotland’s credentials as a major events destination that we have secured the Track World Cup for Glasgow, which will bring the best riders in the world to the new Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.
"Scotland is the perfect stage for major international events and the new venue will undoubtedly contribute to our existing cycling portfolio, while making a significant contribution to the legacy of hosting the 2014 Commonwealth Games."
Tickets for the event will go on sale next month.
