over 150 pre-season (provisional) fixtures now listed at   https://scottishpyramidnews.yolasite.com/

and over 1600 transfers ...       why not add yours too ... 

The clubs are not allowed to announce friendlies at this stage.

What harm would it do to say Team A is playing a friendly v Team B on a date to be arranged all going well ?

Clubs need to wait to see what protocols need to be put in place for starting to play games, and also need to wait till the SFA say games can be played, before they can announce fixtures. The clubs have all been very firmly told not to announce any friendly matches until the Scottish Government advice changes.

Thanks for this and keeping it updated even though we won't see football till the new year at earliest .

When next year? Ireland and England have got grassroots football teams back playing friendlies at least Do you not think that’s strange and we can’t even train

None whatsoever. It allows the people who want us locked in our houses forever though to take some sort of moral high ground.

We have the nonsensical farce of Hull City training in Edinburgh with the SFA having zero control over them but dare to mention a local friendly game and it's Burn at the Stake time.
So nothing to stop our Scottish teams nipping over the border to train then? Can imagine that will be happening

There is, the jrg has mandated that scottish clubs outwith the Premiership and Glasgow City cannot train. The location is irrelevant. It's the governing body of which you are a member that is the issue.

You would think that an ex Premier League club would have their own training grounds, academies to use, unless they've squandered all their Premier Lge riches of course. Why couldn't they go and use St.Georges Park, theFA place, too expensive I reckon.

Liverpool have got one and they're in Germany.

 ... hundreds of amateur, junior and pyramid teams have arranged friendlies (not SPFL) .. and havent the complete idiots in charge (Lowland) just made a big cup draw .. where you can travel 100 miles ?  

Now over 400 matches at  https://scottishpyramidnews.yolasite.com/

 

That statement on friendlies on that website is pathetic...

I can understand clubs organising friendlies, debatable whether they get played at all. With leagues announcing fixtures, I'd like them to deliver the Covid19 statement before everyone gets too excited. IF the season isn't completed we will do this.... at least we will all know beforehand.  Maybe the SFA /SPFL could lead the way ? Second thoughts
