The Scottish FA has today published the 2021 AGM Annual Review.
The Scottish FA’s Group Turnover for 2020 was confirmed with £27.7 million generated, down 26.9% on 2019 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Return to Football Hub was launched in order to communicate and inform over 1 million people involved in the game to provide a gradual and safe return to the sport.
When the professional game made its return, so too did the Scotland National Teams. The Men’s A squad made history by qualifying for UEFA EURO 2020, returning to the major stage for the first time in 23 years. SWNT lifted the Pinatar Cup and players from both squads made generous donations to NHS Charities Together to give their support during the pandemic.
With so many staying at home across the course of last year, 2020 saw a huge growth in supporter engagement online. With a social reach of 1,327,287 and a 46% increase in video views on 2019, culminating in 40,165,973 views.
Scottish FA Coach Education moved online for large parts of the year and over 7000 coaches were educated in Mental Health awareness.
