City Refrigeration Holdings Supports the Glasgow Cup
The Glasgow Football Association is delighted to announce that Willie Haughey of City Refrigeration Holdings last season confirmed a three year sponsorship of the Glasgow Cup, one of football's oldest tournaments. Following City Refrigeration's generous sponsorship, the tournament for the next three years will be named the City of Glasgow Cup.
The Glasgow Cup stretches back to 1887 and is actually the second oldest trophy to be played for in world football, and the competition has gained fresh momentum in recent seasons with the re-introduction of the tournament as an under-17 event.
The five senior Clubs within the Glasgow Football Association compete for the Trophy and due to renewed support and commitment from all clubs, the Glasgow Cup has moved from 'knockout' to a round-robin format, with the two highest-placed teams competing in the Final of the competition in May 2011.
The next round of matches in the City of Glasgow Cup will take place in February 2011. City Refrigeration Holdings has been a long time supporter of Scottish football.
Willie Haughey, Chairman of City Refrigeration Holdings said: "City Refrigeration is delighted to support the Glasgow Cup for the next three years. The Tournament and the Glasgow Football Association are vitally important in the development of young footballers. There is a real appetite across all clubs within the city to see young footballing talent flourish, and we are delighted to support the Association in this objective. The Glasgow Cup has been the starting point for many great football careers and we hope to see many more develop during the next three years. For many years City Refrigeration has enjoyed involvement in Scottish football and we are pleased to continue this close association through the City of Glasgow Cup."
