Few nations are as passionate about football as Scots. From a kick around in the street to watching your team play on a Saturday, football is at the very heart of communities right across the country.
Football is Scotland’s national game. This season’s tournament is a chance to celebrate everything that is good about the game and the positive role it plays in our society; promoting respect, responsibility and tolerance, and creating a lasting legacy for change within Scottish football.
With the help of £1million funding from the Scottish Government, taken from the proceeds of crime, the Scottish Communities League Cup(SCLC) is working with schools, community projects, coaches, parents and young people themselves, to promote the three campaign values of Respect, Responsibility and Tolerance - both on and off the pitch.
The SCLC has also joined forces with the Scottish Football League to devise a season of community-based activities and initiatives that have kicked off across the country which aim to shout about the positives of the beautiful game, as well tackle the wider negative issues often associated with football such as alcohol misuse, sectarianism, racism, domestic abuse and violence.
To find out more about activity taking place in your local area and to be in with a chance of winning a family ticket (for 4 people) to the Scottish Communities League Cup Final on Sunday, March 18 next year please visitwww.facebook.com/ScottishCommunitiesLeagueCup.
