The Fans’ Charter was written by fans, clubs and authorities working together to celebrate the enjoyment the game brings and to help make football better.
Football is a part of our culture. Thousands of fans travel the length and breadth of the country to watch their clubs. They celebrate the wins and despair after defeat. Collectively, everyone wants the game to be the best it can be and to share in the enjoyment that football brings.
The Fans’ Charter captures the good things about Scottish football and demonstrates that supporters, clubs and authorities can find common purpose by listening to each other. What’s been achieved is a common sense view of football that puts people at the centre of the sport and provides guidance as to how to take their relationship forward.
By working together, everyone can use the Charter to remove the barriers that put people off attending matches, mend relationships and make football better.
