An open meeting was held at Stark’s Park on Tuesday 5th February which allowed fans to hear from the Board of Directors about the current progression on league reconstruction in Scotland.

Clubs in both the SPL and SFL are currently in negotiations to merge and create a new single professional football league body. This would also involve new voting arrangements, as well as a different distribution of income (e.g. TV rights and prize money). There would also be a new league structure, with either 3 or 4 professional leagues with mid-season splits. The current momentum suggests that, if agreed, this will be in place for the start of the 2013-14 season.

The audio (below) is mainly from the first half of the meeting, where the bulk of the details of the proposals were presented, along with the Board’s impressions on it.

The Raith Supporters Trust have produced their own notes from the meeting, which are available on their website here: www.raithtrust.org.uk

Please note that discussions are ongoing amongst the leagues and individual clubs, so details are likely to change over the coming weeks and months until an agreement is reached.
