The Scottish Football Association

NEW! Quality Mark

The Scottish FA Quality Mark accreditation scheme has been extended to include two new levels, and we are keen to work with more clubs and teams across the game.

If you are involved at club or team that has ambitions to be bigger, better and stronger then Quality Mark is for you. It is designed to support and recognise the work of clubs and teams that have a desire to be the very best they can be.

Increasing participation in football, driving high standards and developing players, coaches and volunteers are priority for the Scottish FA and our partner McDonald's, but we can't achieve any of this without the passion and committment of volunteers on the ground. More

Community Clubs

This section of the website is dedicated to clubs and teams operating in our communities who have a desire to be the best they can be.

Working in partnership with McDonald's we offer tools and resources to support club leaders, coaches, parents and players.

Our Quality Mark Accreditation Scheme is designed to support clubs and their key stakeholders on their journey to fulfilling their club's ambitions.
