Euan’s Guide and the Scottish Disabled Supporters Association have agreed to work together. Euan’s Guide is international looking at different types of venues whereas the SDSA is focused on Scottish football stadiums.

The Scottish Disabled Supporters Association wishes to actively encourage its members to use the Euan’s Guide Submit a Review function on their web site to comment both positively and negatively on accessible facilities at Scottish football stadiums. For the time being the SDSA is not operating a blog function on its web site whereas Euan’s Guide has resource and expertise in place on a full time basis to deal with posts on a real time basis. For guidance on how to submit a review on Euans Guide please see http://www.euansguide.com/how-to-review”  

The two groups have also agreed that if Euan’s Guide should come across a review which they believe the SDSA need to be aware of they will contact the sender and ask their permission to pass the information and the sender’s contact details to the SDSA. In cases where there is a complaint or a problem this will allow further action to take place.

Feel free to contact either Keith Ferguson (Scottish Disabled Supporters Association) keith_sdsa@btinternet.com or Kiki McDonald at hello@euansguide.com for further information.
