Strengthening Scottish Football

The Scottish Supporters Network is hosted by Supporters Direct Scotland, and aims to capture the views of Scottish football fans and to help influence key decision makers through the formal governance structure of the game.

SD Scotland are the fans representative body as part of the Scottish FA’s Congress, and work with other stakeholders in the game, such as the police and local authorities, to make sure supporters’ needs are taken into consideration throughout our game.

Sign up for free membership of the Scottish Supporters Network to keep up-to-date with our work. You can also support us financially through our voluntary Patreon programme – and support some great causes at the same time!
