Community Development Alliance Scotland

Communities get help to take over sports clubs


Community groups looking to get involved in the running of any kind of sports team are to be offered legal, financial and governance support to do so. Groups attempting to become more involved in anything from grassroots athletics teams or running a professional football club can now get free advice, information and access to business experts from the newly formed Club Development Scotland (CDS).

Set up by Supporters Direct Scotland (SDS), which itself was set up in 2002 to make football clubs more sustainable through supporters involvement and community ownership, CDS will help community groups transition clubs from companies into third sector organisations that deliver social and community benefit.

Partnerships with the Institute of Directors and legal firm DWF will also see dedicated professional support offered in areas including fundraising, due diligence and how to restructure businesses.
