Partnering with the SSA

We are delighted to announced that The Scottish Sports Association has appointed Deloitte Propel as its new Accountancy Services Preferred Partner.

We will work with the Scottish Sports Association, the independent and representative body for governing bodies of sport in Scotland, to provide an exclusive deal and offer a range of services to both the SSA and its members. In addition to helping Scottish Governing Bodies (SGBs) of sport, this tailored package will also be available to the 13,000 sports clubs which are members of the SSA’s members.

“Deloitte Propel provides clients with the best cloud technology in the market, alongside support from a dedicated Deloitte Propel Financial Expert. The sports industry is expanding at an accelerated pace and technology is a definite ally. We are thrilled to support the Scottish Sports Association, their members and their members’ clubs, and to enable better decision making skills through real-time information. We are confident that Propel by Deloitte will be a great partner in helping sports to grow their member bases whilst meeting governance responsibilities.” says Mark Doleman, Lead Partner at Propel.

Back in November 2017, the Scottish Sports Association undertook a review of their accountancy services and invited accountancy providers to submit their proposals to offer those services to both the SSA and their members. Following a competitive tender process, Deloitte Propel was been appointed as the new preferred accountancy partner as of April 1, 2018.

Kim Atkinson, Chief Executive Officer of the Scottish Sports Association, comments: “As a membership organisation, the needs and views of our members are fundamental in informing and guiding our work. In consultation with our members, we launched our new ‘Preferred Partners’ programme, to provide exclusive, best-value deals for our members for services identified by them. Following a competitive tender process, we are delighted to appoint Deloitte as our Accountancy Preferred Partner. The Propel services mirror the innovation and ambition of our members and this new partnership provides an exclusive deal for our members and as another benefit for our members to offer to their member clubs. Working with Deloitte Propel will enable sports to further develop and achieve with a partner focused on growth and innovation, with the breadth of Deloitte behind them.”

This exclusive deal is open to all Scottish Sports Association Full and Associate Members, as well as their member clubs. If you would like more information about the services Propel can offer please contact Tom Mounty on tmounty@deloitte.co.uk.
