sportscotland statement on safe return of sport

Chief Executive of sportscotland, Stewart Harris, said: “We all want to see the safe return of sport as soon as possible but the most pressing priority is public health and wellbeing. As such, we will continue to be guided by Scottish Government public health advice and plan accordingly.

“When the time comes for sport to return, we will work with each sport to ensure the transition back to normality is as safe as possible for everyone concerned.

“We recognise the financial strain which many organisations, clubs and communities are under at this time and are committed to continuing our support to the sporting system.

“As such, we will continue to work with each sport and local partner to determine what further financial support may be required. It is vital that everyone works together to make sure we overcome the challenges faced across the sector.”
