The money collected from criminals will help for Scottish rugby. A total of £3.65m from the proceeds of crime will be invested in rugby club activities and facilities over the next three years.
The funds will be administered through sportscotland’s capital grant scheme.
The move is part of the Scottish government’s CashBack for Communities scheme, which funds diversionary activities for young people.
Scottish Rugby will channel £2.4m of the funding towards enhancing playing and coaching opportunities for youngsters across all of Scotland’s 32 local authorities.
