Glasgow 2014 has launched the official Commonwealth Games auction website where fans can bid for items used in the Games.

More than 10,000 special sporting mementoes will be sold.

They include Tunnock's teacake dresses from the opening ceremony, flags and banners from the venues and previews signed by swimmer Michael Jamieson.

Hundreds of items from all 17 sports will be added every day to the auction.glasgow2014.com site.

Organisers predict it will become the largest-ever Commonwealth Games auction.

Games licensing and merchandising manager Gerry Carey said: "This is the best opportunity for Games fans and supporters to own an authentic piece of Games history.

"All official auction items are exclusive, limited edition and come complete with hologram and letter of authenticity.

"Bidding starts as low as £1, but we expect some items will be very popular and will go for considerably more."
