SFA's Wotte Hoping Scotland Can Build A Football Facility Similar To St. George's Park

Scottish FA Performance Dir Mark Wotte "reckons Scotland must mirror the English FA's £105M ($168.3M) St. George's football centre and hopes to have a project ready in four years," according to Alan Marshall of the Scotland DAILY RECORD. SFA bosses are "desperate for Scotland to have a similar facility of their own," and the Scottish government has pledged £25M ($40.1M) to the development at a yet to be announced venue. Tendering will be completed this year, and the project is "expected to be ready" by '16. Wotte -- "keen to reshape the entire thinking of Scottish football" -- cannot stress enough how vital it is the country get a similar facility to the English, with the Dutch already decades ahead. Watte said, "It’s great that the government have given us £25M ($40M) but now we are looking for partners to build the best centre possible within the money range we have" (DAILY RECORD, 11/29)
