Thanks for completing this survey. You can see the results of our consultation below.

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.

The Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Act 2012 (the Act) came into force in March 2012. The legislation applies to football supporters only and in settings related to watching, attending or travelling to and from football matches. It should be stressed that certain behaviour that is criminalised under the Act may not necessarily be criminalised in other settings, unrelated to football. Supporters Direct Scotland are interested in your views on the repeal of the Act and want to collate those views in a submission to the Scottish Parliament so that supporters’ comments will be taken into account when determining whether the Act should be repealed.

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.
