In memory of
(1937 – 2009)
This obituary is to honour the life of David Will, a former Scottish Football Association president who served as Vice President of FIFA for more than 15 years. He was a solicitor who became involved in football administration through his local club, Brechin City. Mr Will, who was awarded the CBE for services to football in 2002, rose to prominence in the world game when he was selected by the four home nations to join the Fifa executive committee as their representative in 1990. "This news has absolutely devastated everyone here at the Scottish FA and, I am sure, throughout the football world," SFA chief executive Gordon Smith said. "David was a giant of the game. His knowledge and love for football saw him rise
from a small-town club to the vice presidency of FIFA. He was one of the most humble yet influential figures in the game and he played his part in taking football around the world. All of our thoughts and prayers are with David's family and friends at this terrible time. We have lost a friend today â€“ and football has lost one of its most committed and talented sons." This memorial is to honour David Will, his life and his achievements.
