The Scottish FA have joined up with the Scottish Government to help kick out anti-social behaviour from football.

As well as continuing to tackle sectarianism, the new partnership will aim to reduce anti-social conduct, violence, domestic abuse and alcohol and drugs misuse.

“We are delighted to be involved in this new partnership with the Scottish Government and the Police,” said SFA Chief Executive Gordon Smith, who will chair the group.

“Football is a great sport and its influence is felt right across the country. We want to make sure that the passion and excitement that football generates is used to help communities and improve lives.

"This new partnership will allow us to seek out new ways to tackle many of the difficult issues that sadly still exist in Scotland. While these issues may not always be football related, it is only right that the national sport plays its part in helping making Scotland a better country."
