William Hill

William Hill, the title sponsors of the Scottish Cup, brought the competition to new heights when they launched a 125ft hot-air balloon in the shape of the famous Scottish trophy.

The flying cup, which took over 4 months to build, was launched at Hampden Park at the William Hill Scottish Cup Final between Hibernian and Celtic.

The balloon, the largest of it's type in the UK, is so big that it could fit over 120,000 footballs or 4,530,695 bottles of champagne inside it.

‘We're thrilled with the way the balloon has turned out,' said David Lynn, Head of Sponsorship at William Hill, ‘I didn't think it would be possible to replicate a trophy as unique as the Scottish Cup, but the designers have done a magnificent job.

‘We think Scottish football fans will get a real kick out of the balloon - and after the final we're going to take it across the length and breadth of the country.'

The balloon was built in the Czech Republic by the Gloucestershire-based specialists- Exclusive Ballooning, and they were also delighted with the end result.

‘We're very excited to be involved in such a creative and innovative campaign with William Hill,' said Louise Jones, Operations Manager at Exclusive Ballooning, ‘We are really looking forward to seeing the reaction of the fans at the William Hill Scottish Cup Final on Sunday.'
