Nine Scottish clubs to each receive £250k UEFA windfall

NINE Scottish clubs are set to receive a £250,000 UEFA windfall.

The governing body is set to distribute the solidarity payments to clubs not involved in any of the European competitions.

It means nine clubs will receive a portion of the reported £2.32milliion pot which is distributed for use on youth development in Scotland.

The Daily Mail report clubs were informed last week that the money – for clubs not in the Champions League, Europa League or Europa Conference League – is ready to be handed out despite it usually being paid in October.

According to reports Aberdeen, Dundee United, Hibs, Motherwell, Ross County, St Johnstone and St Mirren are the Scottish Premiership sides who’ll receive the cash.

Hamilton and Kilmarnock, who were both relegated last term, will also be handed the payment.

Livingston are said to be missing out on the cash because they did not have an accredited youth system last term.

New Scottish Premiership sides Hearts and Dundee also won’t benefit from the UEFA solidarity payments.
