In Scotland there is one national association football league, the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL). The SPFL was formed in 2013 by the merger of the Scottish Premier League and the Scottish Football League. The SPFL consists of 42 clubs and has four divisions, named the Premiership, Championship, League One and League Two. There are also several regional leagues (most notably the Highland Football League), but there is no regular promotion and relegation between the regional leagues and the national league. This article lists stadiums that have been used for SPFL matches.
