Scotland - Unofficial Matches Results


The following matches have all been organised by the Scottish Football Association (SFA) except for the first five that were prior to its foundation in 1873. The reason is that there were other teams styled as "Scotland" but organised by, for example, the players' union and the armed forces. We wanted this list to complement the list of official matches and so that all matches - official or unofficial - from 1873 only involve teams selected by and representing the SFA.

Unofficial Matches 1870-1891
Unofficial Matches 1902-1919
Unofficial Matches 1929-1935
Unofficial Matches 1939-1945
