Paul Goodwin, Head of Supporters Direct Scotland said:
“Supporters Direct Scotland has had several meetings with the CEO’s of the football bodies at
Hampden Park in the past weeks to discuss the League Reconstruction proposals that are now being
considered. As part of this process we were invited to prepare a paper for the Professional Game
Board (available at www.scottishfans.org) which we did after full consultation with our Council. This
paper notes the views that we feel are widely held by fans and which we believe the clubs should be
taking into consideration.
“Following the submission of this paper our Scottish Council was invited to a meeting at the
Scottish FA where the detailed League Reconstruction plans drafted jointly by the SPL and SFL were
presented to us. We were pleased that the Scottish FA acted as facilitators for this and we believe
the dialogue and views exchanged proved to be useful for both parties.
“We would encourage clubs to continue to urgently discuss and debate the finer details of
the proposal with their own fans groups and to urge the Professional Game Board to take into
consideration our members’ views. We would also urge all fans to contact us via our usual channels
