Abstract

Linking Scottish football to community regeneration is a bold and intrepid initiative, for the association is far from obvious. A quickglance at the environs of most Scottish football stadia will reveal aless than impressive urban landscape, both visual and economic. The mounting trepidation of tenement dwellers in Mount Florida on theapproach of a major international was tangible. It took weeks to getthe 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?
