The Scottish Football Supporters Association was founded in April 2015 with the desire to become a movement for change that believed that through the collective support of key stakeholders (fans) it could help renew, reform and reclaim the game.
Football Governance at the very top of the game at FIFA and UEFA has been shown to be at best poor and as worst corrupt. In Scotland we have seen the abuse of power at many of our leading clubs over the past few years and the inability of the football authorities to take the game forward at club or international level. The level of actual engagement with fans surround key issues is virtually non-existent in an industry that manages and governs itself in a members club mentality. These facts ensures that self-interest is more important than innovation or progress and as a result our game is in decline.
After a solid year of development and progress the SFSA is now in a position where it will seek to take forward the key proposals from its manifesto. We are an organisation made in Scotland with an independent purpose and desire to galvanise fans into a cohesive unit to ensure better representation at all levels of the game. As members of Football Supporters Europe – offering a different dimension to the issues surrounding the game.
As a volunteer run organisation our growth and success will be dependant on the input of football fans at all clubs. We have a fantastic experienced network of individuals and companies on board and we are now seeking to enhance our “staff” volunteer team. We can’t offer any pay but we will be able to offer career assistance in football, access to a growing network and significant job experience aligned to the knowledge you will be helping transform Scottish Football.
