Club Development Scotland is the consultancy arm of Supporters Direct Scotland, a membership organisation created to address the disconnect between sports clubs and their communities.

We believe sports clubs are a huge source of social and community capital, that when operated in the right ethos can contribute huge value to everyone. This is evidenced in our 2010 report ‘The Social and Community Value of Football’.

Club Development offers support to clubs by offering a range of services such as converting and incorporating clubs into appropriate legal structures and raising capital through mechanisms such as community shares, an area where we are market leaders and have helped clubs such as Portsmouth and FC United raise over £6m.

This blog is written by Head of Supporters Direct Scotland, Andrew Jenkin, and offers advice and guidance to sports clubs across Scotland about funding, legal structures, governance, and general development.
