Giving Supporters Representation

Campaigning Change

Thanks for completing the 2017 Scottish Football Supporters Survey. You can find coverage of the survey results opposite and the results pack here.
Fans groups and clubs officials are invited to give their views on the prospect of community ownership at their club and how it could be funded. Following a reward of funding to test the feasibility of a ‘Fans Bank’ to help fund community ownership buy outs of professional clubs, SD Scotland have launched a survey targeted at Supporters Trusts and clubs to gage their interest in community ownership at their club via a social investment fund, under the proposed name of ‘Sports Funder’.
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.
