Sports Minister Shona Robison has previously indicated there would be some form of scheme to help youngsters and disadvantaged groups attend events, and mention was made of this when Glasgow 2014 launched its ticketing arrangements earlier this year.
At First Minister's Questions Tory MSP Liz Smith asked whether the Games would run a scheme similar to the London Olympics - where 125,000 youngsters were admitted free to events.
Ms Smith, who has represented Scotland at cricket, spoke of the success of the scheme at the Olympics which gave so many youngsters free access to events and she praised the impact this had on the success of the London games.
Alex Salmond replied: "Measure to make sure that happens will be announced very shortly.
"This is being addressed by the Games organisers. Liz Smith will see some of her hopes are realised."
However, it appears the First Minister may have jumped the gun on this as it is understood that no announcement is expected until into the New Year, when there are plans for a broader announcement about making the Games - from July 23 to August 3 - as widely accessible as possible.
A Glasgow 2014 spokesperson said: "Glasgow 2014 is working with our Games Partners to develop a programme to ensure identified groups and communities have the opportunity to engage fully with the Games experience. Further details on this will be announced in due course."
