In February the S.D.S.A. were invited to a meeting with Shona Robison The Minister for Commonwealth Games and Sport. The meeting took place today with all S.D.S.A. office bearers attending, supported by George Adam MSP along with the minister and her team.
Ms Robison, who is also responsibility for Equalities, took on board the S.D.S.A.’s aspirations to have more accessible spectating spaces available in the National Stadium at Hampden Park. Ms Robison appeared keen to explore every opportunity possible to improve the current facilities.
Previous to this meeting the S.D.S.A. chairman Keith Ferguson met with senior representatives from Hampden Park Ltd & the Scottish Football Association on the 13th March at the National Stadium. Discussions were positive including such subjects as improving the established accessible areas and increasing choice by adding other accessible facilities elsewhere in the stadium.
Discussions are at an early stage and at the moment the focus is on readiness for the Commonwealth Games 2014 however further information will be distributed when available so watch this space!
