Scottish clubs agree to 'historic' reforms
Wednesday 08 June 2011
Proposals to reform the Scottish Football Association have been unanimously passed by its 93 member clubs.
Under changes voted in at Hampden yesterday, the SFA board will be reduced from 11 officials to seven, including an independent member. Two new boards will be created under the main board, for the professional and non-professional games, while disciplinary procedures will be rewritten.
"This is truly an historic day for the SFA," said the chief executive Stuart Regan.
