Scotland Women’s National Team head coach Pedro Martínez Losa has signed a new contract through until 2027.

Losa told “I am really pleased to extend my stay as head coach of the Scotland Women’s National Team. While we were all disappointed not to be at the World Cup, we now have a blend of experienced players approaching their peak and younger players who have gained invaluable international experience during the Pinatar Cup and the recent friendly match programme.

“We look forward to a really tough but exciting Nations League campaign as a Group A nation and of course starting with tonight’s game against our oldest rivals. This tournament will be a good test for our squad and I am confident we will continue the progression we have made this year and ultimately achieve our objective of returning to major tournament finals.”

Ian Maxwell, Scottish FA Chief Executive, said: “Pedro has overseen a transitional period for the Scotland Women’s National Team and it’s important we have continuity ahead of a busy period of fixtures, including the first-ever UEFA Women’s Nations League.

“There is a lot to look forward to within women’s football in this country in the coming years: with the SWPL bringing greater professionalism and investment into the women’s domestic game, and an elite pathway taking shape that will help that transition for players from league football to the international arena.

“Pedro has a clear vision for the future of the SWNT and we will support him and the squad in order to realise that shared ambition.”
