Today’s announcement by the First Minister although not completely unexpected will come as a real disappointment to Scottish Football fans everywhere and a shock to the finances of many clubs. Local derbies and the festive feel good factor is the highlight of the season to many and football proceeding with just 500 fans is also a major organisational nightmare for our bigger clubs. There will also be significant revenue shortfalls.

For now we can all see the bigger picture and the urgent need for control and in a day of few positives we welcome the fact that football has not been stopped completely which was always our deepest concern.

It is another new normal but The SFSA would like to see urgent discussion for support on the financial impacts to our game and a road map for coming out at the other end.
