The future of Scottish football media has never been a hotter topic. The industry, as a whole, is evolving and the way the sport is covered in this country provides something of a microcosm for the challenges newspapers, websites, clubs and all the rest now face.
It’s a discussion that has found an arena on social media in recent years, but as we all know, social media isn’t always the best place for such nuanced subjects. TheTwoPointOne therefore wants to take this debate offline with our ‘What is the future of Scottish football media?’ event at Drygate Brewery, Glasgow on Monday September 18.

A panel discussion between a number of Scottish football media figures will provide the main portion of the event, with Grant Russell of STV hosting the discussion.
Grant Philips of BT Sport joins the panel, offering insight into how the newbies on the broadcasting block became the market leaders when it comes to Scottish football. There’s more to their secret to success than Michael Stewart v Chris Sutton.
Gordon Waddell of the Sunday Mail will provide the perspective of Scotland’s print media, throwing some light on how newspapers can survive and thrive in the age of the internet.
Former Scottish FA head of communications Darryl Broadfoot will also be a part of the panel discussion, offering insight on the state of Scotland’s football media from his current position as a partner at Glasgow-based creative agency, Frame.
Alan Burrows tells the fascinating tale of a fan who rose through the ranks of the club he supports, Motherwell, to become chief operating officer. However, on this occasion we’re more interested in his views on the increasingly influential club media and the role they play in the overall Scottish football media landscape.
The panel will also consist of Ally Palmer, providing the perspective of a Scottish football media upstart having launched Nutmeg magazine last year. How difficult is it to muscle in on the mainstream media? Does Nutmeg’s success show that print has a viable future in the coverage of the nation’s favourite sport?
