National Representative Support

Glasgow Touch Association are delighted to announce Glasgow based players and managers who represented Scotland at the 2011 Touch World Cup in Edinburgh, are to receive funding towards the cost of their participation. National squad players are entirely self funded, each paying more than £700 to cover the cost of training, kit and accommodation.

The GTA will contribute over £2400, to be distributed between players and managers according to their costs for the event. The aim is to ensure continued involvement of these individuals in the highest level of touch available, therefore furthering development of touch in the region. The GTA's joint role as regional association and organiser of the Summer league, has enabled this level of investment, the beneficiaries of which are the lifeblood of touch in Glasgow.
