The Celtic Cup was founded by Richard 'Rambo' Gray in 2005 with the first match being held in 2006. It is a British University Ice Hockey competition to feature any Celtic teams who join the British Universities Ice Hockey Association. At present the competition is a one-off match held each year between Cardiff Redhawks and Edinburgh Eagles. These matches are often extremely spirited affairs with both sides wanting to play hard, but at the end of the game the friendships made remain. The Celtic Cup is set to be named the Richard 'Rambo' Gray Celtic Cup at the end of his University playing Career in 2010.
