What do we do?

ATAC get involved in a number of activities and have had many successes over the years as we strive to encourage and help our member clubs to support our national team.  Here are some examples of things we have done and continue to do for this purpose:

  • ATAC has an ongoing open dialogue with SFA Security Personnel ahead of every away fixture
  • ATAC attend regular meetings with the SSC/SFA to discuss ticket pricing, season tickets, SSC membership etc
  • ATAC is a member of Football Supporters Europe (FSE) to help share information across countries and stand up for supporters rights throughout europe
  • ATAC attend and participate in the annual FSE Congress
  • Jim Brown (WESTA) and Tam Ferry (EASTA) delivered a presentation to FSE about the SSC
  • In the past we have had discussions with the SFA and Input into their ticket policy. For example, Gordon Smith (then SFA Chief Executive) liaised with ATAC when the cost of a friendly against Argentina would mean charging fans £40 a ticket. After ATAC feedback the match was turned down. The match went ahead the following year at £25 per ticket
  • ATAC have run a number of Fan embassies at a number of away matches.  We aim to restart these once we review the FSE minimum standard criteria
  • ATAC were instrumental in the introduction of the Pipe band section at Hampden
  • ATAC pushed for and got the SFA to offer season tickets for qualifying campaigns enabling fans to sit in the same seat for every match
  • ATAC were a big player in the No Team GB campaign which successfully prevented players from Scotland men’s team playing for a team GB, this was done to secure the future of our national team
  • ATAC had discussions and worked with the police to get streets traditionally closed after matches to be opened around Hampden to help supporters get home quickly and safely
  • ATAC organise an Annual 7 aside football tournament
  • ATAC helped with the set up of the points system introduced for away matches to reward
  • ATAC continue to encourage the SFA to carry out random ticket pickups at away matches to prevent points harvesting.
