To get all SPL teams up to at least GA standard along with the Scottish Football Association.


All created articles should follow both the Project Manual of Style and Wikipedia's Manual of Style.

Tagging and assessment[edit]

Any articles that are within the scope of this task force should be tagged with the following:

{{WikiProject Football|class=|importance=|Scotland=yes}} or if assessing importance change to :{{WikiProject Football|class=|importance=|Scotland=High}} depending on importance level.

You should add |Scotland=yes as this will automatically put the talk page into the appropriate categories.

Importance Guideline:

The proportion of all articles with an assessed project banner is:

100% assessed (estimate: some more article talk pages may still need a banner)


The proportion of all articles with known importance is:

96.5% known importance (estimate: some more articles may still need importance to be assessed)
