Campaigning Change:

The Scottish Supporters network offers fans a platform to discuss important issues within the game and offer opportunities to influence real change within the game. By joining, you will helping ensure the Scottish Supporters network is a strong, organised and unified voice with the common aim of improving the game for supporters. You’ll be invited to participate in surveys, polls and competitions and will be helping to make the network as representative as possible. Fans can be assured their views are represented through Supporters Direct Scotland’s work in association with the football authorities. We believe that having a strong vibrant fans movement allows us to act as a focal point for any organisation to hear the views of Scottish football supporters, be it the media, the Scottish Government or football authorities.
SD Scotland are calling upon clubs in Scotland to be proactive and creative in trying to make Scottish football more affordable and accessible for all. Scottish football's cheapest tickets are expensive compared to other European leagues (please see our research here). To try and increase the attendances of Scottish football and to make it more affordable to a wider demographic of fans, SD Scotland recommend a more diverse range of ticket prices especially aimed at enticing younger fans into grounds and to promote football as a more affordable pastime for families.
We've been invited to participate in Lord Bracadale's independent review of hate crime legilsation in Scotland. Please help inform our response by completing this survey to ensure fans' views are represented in a meaningful way. Survey results will also be used as evidence of supporters' views on the Offensive Behaviour Act as part of its Stage 1 scrutiny.  

We recognise the significant annual investment TV companies make into Scottish Football. We’re also sure that low attendances don’t look great as a TV spectacle. SDS wants to build a direct relationship with Sky Sports, BT Sport and BBC Scotland with a regular course of meetings. We know there must always be compromises, but we believe there’s a real opportunity for us to work together to promote the game we love.  You can take part in our survey, back our petition,  join the discussion and view our research to date via our Campaign For Change wall.
