Alcohol policy group champions Scottish Women’s Football

Scottish Women’s Football has named an alcohol policy group as the new sponsor of its National Performance League, the elite level for girls’ football in Scotland.

Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems, a campaign group formed by doctors who treat extreme cases of alcohol harm, will sponsor the league.

Fiona McIntyre, executive officer at Scottish Women’s Football, said: “We have had a strong stance regarding alcohol sponsorship for a number of years now.

“Not only do we feel this is socially responsible as an organisation, but we feel our stance has been financially justified and supported by the sponsors we have attracted to the game in recent years.”

The sponsorship comes after SWF stated in 2016 that it would never accept sponsorship money from either alcohol or gambling brands.
