Abstract

Linking Scottish football to community regeneration is a bold and intrepid initiative, for the association is far from obvious. A quick glance at the environs of most Scottish football stadia will reveal a less than impressive urban landscape, both visual and economic. The mounting trepidation of tenement dwellers in Mount Florida on the approach of a major international was tangible. It took weeks to get the smell of urine out of the closes. So although it may be opportune to exploit the Scottish populaces' obsession with football, is private corporatism the best template for community regeneration?
