Doncaster: It promises to be another exciting season
SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster expects another “gripping” season of Scottish Premiership football, live on Sky Sports.
“We’ve enjoyed a really positive relationship with Sky for many, many years. It’s been a great partnership, we’ve seen audiences growing in terms of viewers on Sky Sports in recent years and I think a huge part of that is the partnership and the way in which we’ve developed that partnership with Sky.
“We’re very grateful for the support that Sky continues to give the whole of the Scottish game and we’re really looking forward to Sky Sports again exclusively presenting the cinch Premiership live again next season.
“There’s a huge amount to look forward to and part of that is indeed the women’s game.
“Next season the top two divisions of the women’s league will come under the remit of the SPFL and we’re very excited about that.
“I think it’s a hugely exciting development in the game in Scotland. We’ve seen the growth in women’s football across the globe and we want to be a part of that.
“It’s been led very much by the clubs and we’re certainly hopeful that we’ll be able to give whatever support we can to maximise the potential that undoubtedly exists in women’s football in Scotland.

‘We wanted to get it right with VAR’
Video Assistant Referees will be introduced in the Scottish Premiership from the middle of the new season.
All 42 Scottish Professional Football League clubs voted on the proposal with 41 in favour and the technology will be implemented after December’s World Cup in Qatar.
Doncaster said: “We were keen not to be early adopters of this technology. We’ve seen some of the teething problems that its introduction has caused in some other leagues so we were keen to ensure we took advantage of the learnings from those leagues before we implemented it in Scotland.
“We’re not quite ready to launch at the start of the season but, in partnership with the Scottish FA, we’re very hopeful that VAR will launch partway through the season and hopefully achieve less controversy than perhaps we’ve seen in recent seasons.
“It’s a difficult job that the referees have so any support that they can have I’m sure will be appreciated.”
