Introducing the SPFL Trust

Trusted to support communities across Scotland

The SPFL Trust is an independent, registered charity that works in partnership with all 42 SPFL Clubs to develop community activities across Scotland.

Have you met Lomond?

Perhaps the most handsome lion in the world, Lomond is our new mascot, and he's here to help us highlight some of the amazing work going on at clubs across the country. Lomond (who is a vegetarian) loves running and reading, and he's excited to be the newest Scottish football signing.

Watch: Mitch

Footballer Chris Mitchell was 27-years-old when he died by suicide on Saturday 7 May 2016.

The SPFL Trust works with the charity set up in his name, the Chris Mitchell Foundation to deliver mental health first aid training at SPFL clubs. We are also committed to promoting the importance of good mental health.

In this film, six of Chris' former teammates remember their friend.
