Club Development Scotland is an extension of the work that has been delivered throughout England and Wales by Supporters Direct (Club Development) and was also partly been formed from a recommendation from the ‘Supporter Involvement in Football Governance’ Report which came from a Working Group involving Supporters Direct, the Scottish FA, the SPFL, SportScotland and the Scottish Government.
Club Development Scotland is the consultancy arm of Supporters Direct Scotland, a membership organisation created to address the disconnect between football clubs and supporters.
Supporters Direct is the leading organisation working with and promoting sports clubs with community involvement in their ownership and governance structures and is a member of the Scottish FA’s Congress as a supporters representative.
We’ve help set up over 30 Supporters Trust and assisted in the conversion of several clubs into community ownership.
