SFA announces revamp progress
The Scottish Football Association has announced that a working
party will be created to try and progress the revamping of the
Scottish league structure.
The Scottish professional game board met recently after the 12
Scottish Premier League clubs agreed to a change in structure that
would see two top divisions that split into three groups of eight
clubs part way through the season.
The SFA, speaking on behalf of that board which includes members
of the SPL and Scottish Football League, have revealed that talks
have led to the creation of a working party that will aim to ensure
developments are introduced efficiently.
“The Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League have
agreed to set up a working party of nominated club representatives
to expand on the extremely productive meeting held today by the
Scottish FA’s professional game board regarding league
reconstruction,” the statement read on Thursday.
“The PGB are greatly encouraged by the willingness on both sides
to engage on the many areas of common ground and also in their
commitment to implementing change.
“After the working party have reached consensus on a final set
of proposals, they will be presented to all clubs across SPL and
SFL for consideration.”
It is estimated that the working party will meet within the next
month to begin their discussions.
