The findings of the first independent evaluation of Scottish football governance will be revealed by The Scottish Football Supporters Association (SFSA).
Responded to by some 16,000 fans (as well as players, officials and other stakeholders in Scottish football), the research was conducted by the independent SFSA in partnership with German academics experienced in similar football evaluations.
The results will vividly illustrate the huge culture gap between fans and many of the institutions that run the game and point to the need for a groundbreaking ‘big conversation’ about remaking the game in Scotland.
The SFSA is Scotland’s fans’ representative in The Football Supporters Europe network (FSE), an independent, representative and democratically organised grass-roots network of football fans’ in Europe with members in currently 48 countries across the continent.
