Scottish Premier League Pushes For Reconstruction In Time For Next Season
Published December 3, 2012
SURVEY SAYS: In Glasgow, Gregor Kyle reported the Scottish FA, SPL, SFL and fan group Supporters Direct Scotland have collaborated to create a national football survey to "seek the views of those they describe as the lifeblood of the game." The survey will "allow opinions to be heard" on subjects such as league reconstruction, national team performance, rules and regulations and the matchday experience. The survey is being billed as "the most-comprehensive survey ever carried out in Scottish football" (DAILY RECORD, 11/30).
EURO 2020 BACKING: Also in Glasgow, Craig Swan wrote that FIFA VP Jim Boyce has "thrown his weight behind Scotland's ambitious plans to help stage Euro 2020." UEFA President Michel Platini has "put forward the idea of a one-off tournament played across 13 different cities." Boyce said, "When you look at the marvelous facilities at Hampden, I think it would be an ideal venue" (DAILY RECORD, 12/1).
