First SD Scotland Index on Governance and Ownership ReleasedPrint This Post

Supporters Direct Scotland (SD Scotland) have released the findings of their first index into the governance and ownership of clubs in the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL).

The index builds on a Working Group Report on Supporter Involvement in Football Clubs (made up of the SFA, SPFL, Supporters Direct Scotland, Scottish Government and Sportscotland) which provided recommendations on reducing barriers to further involving fans within their clubs. Some of these recommendations were ultimately not accepted or pursued by clubs, but are still regarded by SD Scotland as good practice, and have been used as the basis for the SD Scotland Index.

Raith Supporters Trust are proud to have played an integral role in developing the SDS Index, building on our “Who Owns What?” research into the structure of Raith Rovers
