We’ve worked in association with the Scottish FA and SPFL to deliver the Scottish Football Supporters Survey since 2012.

Since starting the Survey, SDS have worked in partnership with the games’ governing bodies to introduce a cycle of change for supporter on key issues from results of the survey with results being used in the following ways:

  • The Scottish FA, SPFL and Supporters Direct Scotland will publish the full survey results in a comprehensive format
  • Supporters Direct Scotland will identify key “supporter asks”
  • These will be presented to the Scottish FA Congress and SFA/SPFL through SDS

To date, supporter views have been taken on board and helped achieve the implementation of innovations such as:

  • The creation of a single league body, the SPFL
  • The creation of the Premiership Play-Offs
  • The appointment of SDS and other independent groups (Players, Coaches and Referee Representatives) to the Scottish FA Congress
  • The reformatting of the League Cup
