Funding SFM

Funding: July Appeal Underway!

Target: £2000 – Raised: £

SFM need your help.

Our July appeal is on again folks, as we seek to enlist your help to keep the lights on and the hard drives spinning at SFM Central.

Our target figure this time reflects the downturn in monthly subs. In the last year, although our readership has increased by around 20%, our monthly subscription income has gone down substantially from around £200 pm to £100 pm..
This is partly due to folk doing a bit of financial housekeeping and understandably trimming their outgoings – and perhaps also as a consequence of credit cards being renewed and the sub config being rendered out of date as a consequence.

Since SFM started we have never campaigned to maintain or increase those subs, although we will now do so in the future as a matter of course

The net result though is that our resources are dwindling, so we hope we can make up some of  the lost ground soon.


After six years of existence as a non-partisan website and blog (relatively unique to the soccer blogosphere), SFM is still one of the most influential and informative sources of news and analysis in Scottish Football. We still strive to get an honest account of the affairs of the game and to hold the powers at Hampden to account.

In those years we have cast a spotlight on the errors, inconsistencies and deliberate misinformation peddled by the MSM on matters related to our national game. We have helped to expose succulent lamb journalism – and we will continue to do so.

Of course we know that there are ever growing demands and pleas for funds from online sources. That said, we hope if you CAN help, you will.

SFM content or participation is not hidden behind any paywall, and there are no ‘Subscriber-Only’ bonuses. The truth has to be available to all of us regardless. That is our our overarching aim.

If you would like to help us in our task, please visit our donations page and make a donation or subscribe – small or large.  You can send money quickly and easily via PayPal, or transfer directly to the SFM bank account.

Thanks once again to everyone who has helped the SFM community financially and morally over the last six years.

If even a third of our regular users subscribed the minimum amount, we would raise around £50,000 per year.
Each year, we are looking to raise only a small fraction of that – and remember you can cancel a monthly donation at ANY time.





About SFM

SFM is an online community whose members are drawn from fans of all Scottish Football clubs.
Its overriding goal is to see sporting integrity restored to paramountcy in Scottish Football.
To help achieve that SFM will seek to ask the questions that the mainstream media consistently fail to ask of the authorities, who in turn consistently fail to govern the sport in accordance with their own rules.
SFM is funded by donations from its members, and has no links to any football club or other organisation.
