What is it?

#SportHour is a chance to join us on Twitter and discuss the incredible sporting landscape in Scotland, including ways to get involved in sport, explore new opportunities and hear from the sporting community on a wide range of sporting topics.

When is it?

We will be LIVE with the next #SportHour from 9-10pm on Monday 1 March 2021

What is the theme this month?

The March theme will focus on empowering communities. Questions are listed below and will be promoted on Twitter @sportscotland

This month we will continue to publish three questions instead of six, to allow time for everyone to get their answers in as well as encourage more conversation.  

How does it work?

It's a Twitter chat we run from our sportscotland Twitter account, which you can follow using the hashtag #SportHour. The aim is to discuss different aspects of sport in Scotland and to get together as one sporting community.

Each month we have a theme which we tell you at the end of the previous #SportHour. We announce the questions and co-hosts in the week leading up to #SportHour.

We let you know the questions in advance so that you can plan your answers. On the day itself, we start about 8.45pm and the questions begin from 9pm.

The questions will be asked every 20 minutes starting at 9pm. Remember to include 'A1' in your answer for Q1 and so on for all three questions. Important: tag all your posts with #SportHour so that everyone can see your contribution.

An example is: 'A1 I recently joined the local hockey team, met some great friends, got fit & now I feel fantastic! #SportHour'


  1. How can sport help to empower communities as we make our way out of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic? 
  2. What examples have you seen where sport or physical activity has helped to strengthen communities?
  3. In your sporting community, what are you looking forward to most when restrictions allow? 

When is next month's #SportHour? 

Monday 5 April 2021 from 9-10pm

How do I submit question ideas for the next #SportHour? 

Tweet us @sportscotland and we will add them to the list!
