Scottish FA International Roll of Honour


The International Roll of Honour is a list established by the Scottish Football Association recognising players who have gained 50 or more international caps for Scotland. The roll of honour was launched in February 1988, when 11 players had already achieved the distinction.[1] Each player inducted receives a commemorative gold medal, an invitation to every Scotland home match and has their portrait hung in the Scottish Football Museum.[1]

As of 2019 there are 32 players on the roll of honour. Steven Naismith is the most recent addition, having won his 50th cap on 16 November 2019 against Cyprus.[2]

In July 2017, the SFA launched the Women's International Roll of Honour, which recognises players who have won 100 or more caps for Scotland women's national football team. The women's roll of honour initially included 12 players.[3]
