HAVE YOUR SAY ON THE FUTURE OF SCOTTISH FOOTBALL

 

Supporters Direct Scotland in partnership with the Scottish FA and supported by the SPFL are pleased to launch the Scottish Football Supporters Survey 2016 – designed to give supporters across the country their say on the big issues affecting the national game.

This year’s survey is expected to engage tens of thousands of supporters, with clubs supporting the call to ask fans, “What’s the view from where you sit?”

Since its inception, the Scottish Football Supporters Survey has helped shape strategy and facilitate change at all levels of the game.

Your feedback is essential in the next stage of supporter engagement and to help provide a better fan experience whether supporting your club or country.

Already, your 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

In addition, the survey feedback has also enhanced the debate on the fixture calendar, pricing strategy, barriers to attendance, alcohol in football and fan engagement and ownership models.

Have your say on the future of Scottish football and you could win tickets to Scotland’s FIFA World Cup qualifier against Lithuania at Hampden (8 October 2016)

How will your views count?

  • We’ll 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’ July meeting
  • Supporters Direct will report on the progress of the “supporter asks” in July 2017

Stewart Regan, Scottish FA Chief Executive stressed the importance of the annual survey.

He said: “We are delighted to work in partnership with the SPFL and SDS to launch this year’s Scottish Football Supporters Survey. The Scottish FA is committed to improving the game at all levels and the feedback from the fans – the lifeblood of the game – is important in shaping our plans for the future.”

 

Head of Supporters Direct Scotland, Andrew Jenkin explained that the survey is part of a process to continue to deliver change.

“As an organisation, Supporters Direct Scotland, plays a vital role in influencing key issues for supporters in Scottish football,” he added.

“This year we are more ambitious than ever before and plan to present the findings to all supporters, and then identify the key “supporter asks” we think Scottish football as a whole should focus on. Our aim is to be collaborative, to represent supporter views clearly, and to work with governing bodies & clubs to deliver ongoing change.”

SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster added that the survey provides a valuable opportunity for the league governing body to reflect on the views of supporters across the country.

“The SPFL welcomes this survey and the opportunity it provides to hear and take on board the views of Scottish football supporters around the issues of most interest and concern to them,” he said.

Present the Petrofac Training Cup at the 2016 Final!

 

The Petrofac Training Cup Final takes place on Sunday 10th April at Hampden Park, Glasgow and one lucky Peterhead FC fan will have the chance to be right at the heart of the action!

Petrofac Training Services, proud sponsors of the Cup, are ditching the suits once more in favour of giving one supporter the opportunity to present the Petrofac Training Cup to their team should they be victorious.

This time around they want to do something a little bit different however. They'd like supporters to nominate someone they think deserves this fantastic opportunity, and in 100 words or less explain 'why'.

Perhaps you know someone who has supported Peterhead FC their entire life? Perhaps this is a prize that would have tremendous sentimental value to someone you care about...or maybe you'd just like to nominate yourself to be in with a chance of handing the silverware to your team!

All you need to do is fill in the form at www.petrofactrainingcup.com/present-the-cup with the requested details to be in with a chance of winning. Good luck!

Terms and conditions apply. One Rangers FC fan and one Peterhead FC fan will be selected. Winners contacted by Tuesday 15th March. Winners will have 48 hours from receipt of email to claim their prize (instructions will be provided). Valid email address required.
