The event will take place at the 5,000-seater stadium which has undergone an £18m redevelopment in preparation for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Last year's inaugural competition, which sees eight British cities compete against each other in ten events and four relays, took place in front of a sell-out crowd at Cardiff's International Stadium and was won by London South.
And UKA chief executive Niels de Vos admitted they had considered hosting multiple Super 8 events in 2010 after the success of Cardiff.
"There was a temptation to roll the series out to two, three or even more fixtures in this due to the level of interest it attracted from a large number of cities.
"But we have decided that we can further improve on the event, and in doing so cement its reputation as a premier competition format going forward.
"This year we are investing further in the event and there are a number of exciting developments, including a high quality international athlete contingent who will compete in Super8 before taking part in the Aviva British Grand Prix in Gateshead three days later.
"Scotstoun stadium is double the size of Cardiff and we're confident that the people of Glasgow will fill the stadium to support their team against the English and Welsh Cities.
"It will be like a prelude for 2014 Commonwealth Games for fans and athletes alike."
Teams from Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow, London North, London South, Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield competed last year but, aside from Glasgow, the seven remaining cities are yet to be confirmed for the 2010 event.
