The main team's departure was on 28 February 2006 from Glasgow Airport flying with Emirates Airlines, one of the team's main sponsors. Other sources of financial support are the Clydesdale Bank, sportscotland, the Commonwealth Games Endowment fund, and the Scottish general public.

Scotland had been adversely affected by the withdrawal of judo from the 2006 programme, where it had won many medals in previous games.

Despite the withdrawal of judo the team had a hugely successful games and brought back its highest medal total ever.

The team was sponsored by the Clydesdale Bank.
