The Scottish FA has reiterated its position in relation to Team GB participation at the Olympic Games in London 2012.

Following comments from Lord Moynihan, the chairman of the British Olympic Association, that “the British team needs to be selected from the home nations”, the Scottish FA has released the following statement to the media:

“While we acknowledge the comments from Lord Moynihan with regard to Team GB, we can state our position has not changed since we signed up to the agreement with the other Home Associations in May 2009.

“The Scottish FA, the Football Association of Wales and the Irish FA have already agreed that England would participate under the Team GB banner. There have been no further discussions since then involving the Home Associations and our reasons for not participating are well known.”
