SNP Round Table Broadcasters to put Scotland Matches on Free TV


The SNP will today hold a round table with a number of major broadcasters and representatives from Scottish football to put Scotland’s national games on free TV.


Joining Gavin Newlands MP for a discussion will be representatives from BBC Scotland, BBC Alba, Sky, STV, Channel 4, Viaplay, the SFA and the Scottish Football Supporters Association.


The SNP is keen that Scotland international matches are screened on free-to-air television just like England and Wales games are.


Kenneth Gibson MSP commented:


“Unfortunately for too long many Scotland fans have been priced out of watching their team play, including last month’s fabulous triumph over Spain.


“England fans can watch their side for free on Channel 4, and Welsh supporters can see their games on S4C free of charge.


“The SNP want to see a similar offering for Scotland fans. We are seeing one of the best Scotland sides in decades, led by Saltcoats-born Steve Clarke and to inspire the next generation of talent we should not have to get past a paywall to see it.


“I am glad that all the major broadcasters and representatives from Scottish football who have taken the time to come and discuss this very important issue with Mr Newlands.


“I am hopeful for a positive solution that works both for Scottish football and for fans of the national game can be found.”
