The Football Summit, chaired by the First Minister Alex Salmond, took place on 8 March 2011 to address the increasing pattern violence and disorder at the time of 'Old Firm' games. Also in attendance were:
- Kenny MacAskill, Cabinet Secretary for Justice,
- Shona Robison, Minister for Public Health and Sport
- Stewart Regan, Chief Executive, Scottish Football Association
- Neil Doncaster, Chief Executive, Scottish Premier League
- David Longmuir, Chief Executive, Scottish Football League
- Martin Bain, Chief Executive, Rangers Football Club
- Peter Lawwell, Chief Executive, Celtic Football Club
- Stephen House, Chief Constable, Strathclyde Police
The group issued a joint statement which included a coherent eight point commitment plan to tackle the issues of violence, bigotry and alcohol misuse linked to not only Scottish football, but wider Scottish society.
The plan was taken forward by the Joint Action Group (JAG) who reported their recommendations on how the summit's recommendations would be achieved prior to the start of the 2011/12 season.
