The Commonwealth Games Council for Scotland announced on 3 November 2005 that Scotland would be sending 166 athletes (104 men and 62 women) to compete in the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Australia, supported by 70 officials. This is a smaller team than the country fielded at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester, England, when Scotland sent 207 athletes and 85 officials, winning 6 Gold, 8 Silver and 16 Bronze medals.

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.
