Solidarity Between Sports

On 30th July the SOA joined with 34 other Sports Governing Bodies in writing a letter to the First Minister to ask for further support for the sport and leisure sector. We signed the letter as a show of solidarity with other sports, while we are able to get out in the forests and our favourite local terrains, many sports remain ‘in lockdown’ due to closed indoor facilities or the nature of their sport. We stand together as we seek a safe and secure future for sport in Scotland.
