THANK YOU FOR COMPLETING THE 2017 SCOTTISH FOOTBALL SUPPORTERS SURVEY RESULTS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON - STAY TUNED!

SDS want to support a more innovative approach to ticket prices and matchday value. We recognise that revenue cannot drop at our clubs, nor would supporters want to see that impacted on the park. We do believe there are more creative pricing strategies that can be introduced, delivering wider choice at both ends of the pricing scale. SDS also believes we can work with clubs to assess how to add genuine, meaningful value to match-days and open to that process of dialogue and support.  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.

SDS would like to see supporters more central to decision making processes, by those that govern the game, both from within (governing bodies) and externally (local authorities, police and other external agencies, and Scottish Government). This means taking a more “customer focused” approach to the game we love, from police and stewarding. We also want to see the introduction of a test pilot around family friendly in-stadium bars (which already exist) that don’t require fans to come in and leave, before re-entering the stadium.

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.
