Explained: The ’embarrassment’ and ‘chaos’ of Scottish football

Published by on May 18th, 2020.


The return of football has become a key talking point across Europe as countries begin to lift coronavirus restrictions, with mixed results, across the continent.

Though France, Belgium, and the Netherlands have all advocated abandoning the 2019-20 season, Germany’s top flight will be the first major league in Europe to return to competition this weekend.

In the UK, the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) seems destined to follow the former countries, ending the season prematurely, after a vote by clubs.

But circumstances surrounding the decision have included accusations of bullying and calls for an independent inquiry.

Football in Scotland, at both professional and grassroots level, was suspended on March 13 following the UK government’s announcement of measures to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

On 8 April, the SPFL then balloted clubs about ending competitive football in tiers 2-4 of the league system and awarding places based on an average points basis. The resolution also proposed the option of ending the Scottish Premier League it the remaining 49 fixtures could not be played.
