The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) say that the team bringing the event to Scotland next year has made good progress towards delivering a successful competition.
A CGF review group has been in Glasgow since October 25 studying the work carried out by the Glasgow 2014 Organising Committee, including reviews of transport, security and capital works on venues.
Bruce Robertson, chairman of the CGF Glasgow 2014 Coordination Commission, said he was very impressed with what he had seen.
He said: "The quality of the partnership between the Glasgow 2014 Organising Committee, Glasgow City Council, Police Scotland and the Scottish Government is excellent and we see an increasingly integrated effort with a total focus on delivering the best Commonwealth Games ever.
"With the Games now just eight months away, the excitement in Glasgow and across the Commonwealth is building."
The visit came as the Baton continued its journey round the Commonwealth, arriving in the Gold Coast of Australia yesterday.
CGF Chief Executive Mike Hooper said: "The Games delivery partnership has much to do to be ready when the Athletes Village opens on 13 July 2014, but none of this is unexpected and plans exist to achieve everything needed and to do so in a fiscally responsible manner. Our focus with the organising committee, Glasgow City Council and Scottish Government is now to put the icing on the cake. The Games promise to be a unique Glaswegian and Scottish experience.
"These Games will enhance the brand of the Commonwealth Games, and feedback from our discussions with our top athletes in the Commonwealth reinforce that these will be very, very special Games."
David Grevemberg, Chief Executive, Glasgow 2014, said the team was working hard to deliver a first-class Commonwealth Games. He said: "There's still a lot of work to be done and no sense of complacency on our part.
"We are getting ready to welcome the world."
