Ruchazie (// rukh-HAY-zi) is a district in the Scottish city of Glasgow. It is situated to the North-East of the city close to Easterhouse. The area has experienced considerable re-generation and improvement in recent years thanks to Tower Homes LHO and Ruchazie Housing Association. Ruchazie is the only district in Glasgow that does not have a Public House, although many of the inhabitants are familiar with them in other areas. In August 2009, construction of a Soccerworld five-a-sides complex situated on ground between Croftcroighn Road and the M8 motorway (formerly Whitehill Secondary Former Pupils F.C. playing fields) was completed and opened to the public. The facility includes a soft play area, female-only gym and a licenced bar.
