SFA Up The Ante On Change Of Ownership
Updated Wednesday, 6th June 2012
It will not be so easy to take over a club.
Speaking after the AGM at Hampden, SFA chief executive Stewart Regan said: "It is important that club owners take more responsibility to ensure that they sell their club to an individual or individuals who act responsibly and within the rules of football. The Scottish FA governs the whole of football and rather than spend millions of pounds on investigations into any number of prospective purchases across the game at all levels - which would be better kept within the game - it is important that the onus is on those involved in the sale of the club."
The SFA also announced a £4.5million increase in turnover for the year to £32.2million, with one third of turnover issued directly to member clubs - an increase on the previous year, when one quarter of the turnover was allocated to members.
