Scottish FA Statement on SWNT player agreement

Saturday, 24 June 2017


The Scottish FA and the Scotland Women’s National Team (SWNT) are pleased to have concluded an international player agreement for UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 and the forthcoming 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualification campaign. This agreement contains both commercial and operational elements.

The Scottish FA is fully committed to the development of girls’ and women’s football in Scotland. Over the past seven years we have doubled our investment into girls’ and women’s football, resulting in participation numbers across Scotland almost doubling within this period.

We are delighted that under head coach Anna Signeul the SWNT have qualified for their first ever major tournament finals. Since qualification was achieved, our priority has always been to ensure that the SWNT are fully prepared for next month’s UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 in the Netherlands. To this end, we have invested significantly into tournament preparation, including overseas trips and training camps.

We look forward to supporting the SWNT in the Netherlands this summer and to using the team’s participation in the UEFA Women’s Championships 2017 as a springboard to generating increased interest in girls’ and women’s football in Scotland from players, coaches, sponsors and, of course, fans.
