Atac and SFA minutes 26th March 2010
The Association of Tartan Army Clubs (ATAC) was formed in 2000 to act on behalf of fans of the Scottish national team, both home and away. ATAC directly represents over 1500 members of affiliated Tartan Army clubs throughout Scotland and beyond, but does not claim to directly represent the Tartan Army. We liaise regularly with the Scotland Supporters Club and Scottish FA staff in relation to issues specifically impacting supporters of the national team such as ticketing, travel & security, supporters experience, match buses, fan events, and much more.
ATAC also contributes to the wider conversation on Scottish and European Footballing issues as a whole. Our vice chair fills a seat on the board of Supporters Direct Scotland (SDS), who in turn hold a seat on the SFA Congress. We also participate in meetings and discussion with the supporters groups from the other Home Nations, and are members of, and engage with, Football Supporters Europe (FSE).
Each affiliated club sends a representative to the ATAC committee. This committee meets regularly with Scottish Football Association, promoting the best interests of every Scotland fan. Before ATAC was formed, there was no formal dialogue between Scotland fans and the SFA.
You don’t have to be a member of an affiliated Tartan Army Club to get your viewpoint across. ATAC will listen to any point raised by a member of the Scotland Supporters Club. If you have an issue you wish to raise, please email us.
