Scottish Sea Farms extends sponsorship

Scottish Sea Farms has agreed to extend its sponsorship of the Glasgow Celtic Society Cup for a further three years, with the 2022 final between Glasgow Mid Argyll and Kyles Athletic taking place at Peterson Park, Yoker, on Saturday June 25.

This will be the first time the trophy, first played for in 1879 and the oldest of its kind in shinty, has returned to its historic home since 2010.

Scottish Sea Farms has been main sponsors since 2018 and contribute £3,300 annually to the cost of staging the event.

The company will also offer a free leather shinty ball to the first 250 spectators through the gates, along with goodie bags and raffle prizes for those attending the pre-match lunch.

Glasgow Mid Argyll make their first appearance in the final for 35 years, on their own pitch, and they will be tested against the current holders Kyles Athletic.

Scottish Sea Farms managing director Jim Gallagher said: ‘Shinty is woven into the fabric of the communities in which we work and live, with the Glasgow Celtic Society Challenge Cup the pinnacle of its sporting calendar.

‘Committing a further three years of support is our way of helping ensure both the much-enjoyed cup final and the wider game continue to thrive for generations to come.’

Recent finals have been staged outside of Glasgow, most recently at Taynuilt. However, with a new centre for traditional field sports planned for Peterson Park, the 2022 cup final returns to the city.

This follows work by Glasgow Mid Argyll, Glasgow Gaels GAA and a local football club, in partnership with Glasgow Life which runs Glasgow’s culture and leisure services, to plan and secure the long-term future of Peterson Park as a centre for traditional field sports after covid-related budget cuts forced its closure in April 2021.

Organisers expect the return to Glasgow will result in a significant uplift in the profile of what will be the 117th Glasgow Celtic Society Challenge Cup Final.
