Scottish event gets sponsorship boost

Moneygate to sponsor Scottish Area Team Championship

The Scottish Area Team Championship has been given a boost - after the Scottish Golf Union announced award-winning financial services company Moneygate as the event's new sponsor.

In a three-year deal, worth more than £50,000, Moneygate - one of the UK's fastest growing financial services companies,will also become official Independent Financial Advisers to the SGU and sponsors of the SGU Golf Central open competition entry forms.

The sponsorship provides a welcome boost for the Scottish Area Team Championship, which reverts to a new format this year when the event takes place over one weekend, May 15 to 16. The Championship will be staged at Kinross over the Montgomery and Bruce courses, with the leading six players from each of the SGU's 16 Area Associations taking part.

"We are delighted to bring Moneygate on board as our new partners and sponsors of the Scottish Area Team Championship. They are an ambitious company with a desire to grow their brand in Scotland and see the SGU as a great platform to deliver that." said Hamish Grey, Chief Executive of the Scottish Golf Union.

"The sponsorship market has obviously been very challenging during the difficult economic climate so it's great to add a new brand to our portfolio. It's fantastic news for the Championship and Moneygate's investment will help lift the event to another level."

Moneygate, which launched in 2006, has offices in Newcastle, London and Edinburgh and provides Independent Financial Advice to consumers and corporate bodies throughout the UK. The company specialises in investments, mortgages, pensions and insurance products and have recently launched ActivePlan, a bespoke financial management service and the only one of its kind available in the country.

Dennis Reed, Sales Director for Moneygate, is looking forward to his company's partnership with the SGU.

He said: "The SGU has a fantastic track record at governance on and off the course in recent years and we are very much looking forward to raising the company's profile in Scotland through our partnership. We firmly believe golf members in Scotland will benefit from using our products and services and hope that we can become an established supporter for amateur golf for many years to come."

"We are still a relatively young company but this investment represents a significant step forward for us. It was important that we found a partner with similar ambitions to grow and interact with their audience and the Scottish Golf Union provides a great match for us." he added.
