The iconic Gleneagles Hotel and Golf Course was the venue for the launch of Frank McAvennie’s ‘Frank and Friends’ corporate hospitality programme
Monday 20 April.
‘Frank and Friends’ provides sports fans with the chance to have their heroes take part in an event specially designed for them. It is headed up by former Celtic, West Ham United and Scotland striker Frank McAvennie who has already put his contact list to good use by persuading Old Firm legends John Hartson and Andy Goram to attend the Gleneagles launch.
A range of events are possible with ‘Frank and Friends’ from traditional sportsperson dinners through to football and golfing events and it is the golf part that is featured in the launch event at Gleneagles Hotel.
The golf programme allows fans a chance to play a round of golf with their sporting heroes and hear first-hand stories from their glittering careers. The golfing days can be designed to cater for any sized group or party with an icon from the world of sport playing with every team.
The ‘Frank and Friends’ programme is delivered in conjunction with ‘Lang Atholl – The Experience’, a corporate hospitality company providing an exciting and exclusive programme to entertain clients, reward staff and engage with customers.
With expertise in designing corporate programmes, consumer engagement events and loyalty schemes, Lang Atholl is perfectly placed to create an event unlike any other.
Frank McAvennie said:
“It was great to be able to launch the ‘Frank and Friends’ hospitality programme and I can’t think of a better venue than Gleneagles.”
“There’s a great bunch of guys on this programme and I’m looking forward to working with them in the coming weeks and months as fans take part in the ‘Frank and Friends’ programme.”
“We may all be a yard or two slower these days than we used to be but none of us have lost our competitive edge.”
‘Lang Atholl – Experience’ Director Ruaridh Norton added:
“I’m delighted that we have Frank McAvennie delivering this hospitality programme. ‘Frank and Friends’ is a great opportunity for fans to spend time with their sporting heroes in an event that is specially created for them.”
“All the players involved have great stories to tell from their careers and this programme gives them the chance to hear these tales in a relaxed, but memorable, environment.”0
