Scotland SquadThe Scottish Government’s is committed to the development of our national game, and works closely with the football authorities, clubs and supporters' organisations.

We invest in football development and facilities and later this year will deliver a world-class national performance centre for sport which will have football at its centre.

The Scottish Government is also committed to the principle that supporters should have a role in decision-making - or even ownership when the opportunity arises - of their football clubs. A public consultation on this issue closed in January 2016, and the Scottish Government is currently considering the responses.
