Scottish FA

 

The Scottish FA exists to promote, foster and develop the game at all levels in this country.


Founded in 1873, Scottish football’s governing body has recently undergone the most radical changes in its history, enabling us to lead the game into a new era. The launch of our strategic plan Scotland United: A 2020 Vision outlines the vision, values and goals that underpin the organisation and its many facets.


The plan encompasses four strategic pillars:
•    Perform and Win
•    Strong Quality Growth
•    Better financial returns
•    Respected and Trusted to Lead


The Scottish FA is committed, with the support of its partners and sponsors, to promote the game at grassroots level by providing players, coaches and volunteers with access to football regardless of ability, sex, race or gender.


We have also invested £15m in a four-year Performance project which will accommodate the most talented young players in seven Regional Performance Schools around the country. Here, they will be coached by the Scottish FA around the educational curriculum, with the focus on the 10,000-hour elite performance benchmark.


The Scottish FA is also responsible for operating the world-famous Scottish Cup and is proud of its distinction as the oldest cup prize in world football.


Equally, the Scottish FA is responsible for the fortunes of al our national teams: from the Senior Men’s and Women’s A Squad, to the under-21s and National Youth Teams from Under-15 Victory Shield to Under-19.


The Scottish FA’s coaching course is revered the world over and has been used and endorsed by such illustrious coaching names as Sir Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho, Kenny Dalglish, Marcello Lippi, Andre Villas-Boas and Walter Smith.


Governance is a primary responsibility and the appointment of a Compliance Officer and a move towards an independent Judicial Panel has enhanced the efficiency and transparency of the disciplinary process. Club Licensing, player and coach registrations, Referee Development and Coach Education are also key components of the Scottish FA’s wide commitment to the national sport.
