Specsavers has agreed a new three-year deal worth £600,000 to sponsor Scotland’s football referees.

The renewal of the deal with the Scottish FC, which began in September 2002, will see the money invested in training and development of Scotland’s referees including the continued funding of the referees training academy which was established as a result of the initial agreement.

Hugh Dallas, the Scottish FA’s new head of referee development, commented: “Over the last few seasons, the Specsavers sponsorship has allowed us to make positive strides in the training, coaching and development of our existing referees whilst assisting in the recruitment of 750 new referees into the game.  

“Unlike football managers, we can’t just go out there and make new signings. It takes years to train our referees and a huge amount of effort and hard work goes into achieving the high standards we have set.”

Dallas concluded: “The new deal will enable us to continue to provide the very best of materials for the training of the up and coming referees, guys like John Beaton and Kevin Clancy, and ensure that our reputation in the world of football is maintained in the years ahead.”

The deal was negotiated by MEC Sponsorship on behalf of Specsavers.
