The Gleneagles Hotel will sponsor the Scottish team in Golf Live's Celebrity Cup, which takes place from May 10-12 at the Celtic Manor Resort in Wales.

The inaugural competition consists of teams comprised of six celebrities from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland going head-to-head in a round-robin format.

Official Celebrity Cup practice will take place on Friday 10 May, with qualifying matches running on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12.

The final, also played on Sunday, will be contested between the top-two teams from the qualifying rounds. Ant and Dec will host the prize-giving, alongside event ambassador Colin Montgomerie.

The confirmed Scottish team includes Gavin Hastings (captain), Jamie Murray, Kenny Logan, Alan Hansen and Kenny Dalglish.

"We are delighted to welcome one of our most committed exhibitors, 2014 Ryder Cup host Gleneagles, as the Celebrity Cup Scottish team sponsor," said James Goode, Celebrity Cup Event Director.

"It will complement the team of sporting stars and profile the venue outside of Scotland to committed golf fans."

Patrick Elsmie, Gleneagles' Manging Director, added:

"We're very excited to be sponsoring the Scotland team as they battle it out against the other home nations in the Celebrity Cup.

"It's a brilliant opportunity to raise the profile of Gleneagles and the Home and Golf and I'm sure it'll be a fantastic day's entertainment."
