The Scottish Football Association has received significant funding from sportscotland in each of the last four years to support the implementation of the sport’s development plan. The level of investment is an operational matter and I have asked the chief executive of sportscotland, Stewart Harris, to provide the detailed information requested.

In the three years from 2008-09, the Scottish Football Association was awarded £2.535 million direct from the Scottish Government to deliver a wide range of football opportunities as part of the Cashback for Communities programme. A further £2 million has been provided from the Cashback for Communities programme to sportscotland to help support the delivery of quality facilities in communities across Scotland.
