Some suspended football leagues have been given the go-ahead to resume.
League One, League Two and the Women’s Premier League have all been given the go-ahead after talks between the Scottish FA and Scottish Government.
However, other leagues will remain suspended indefinitely.
Speaking at in the parliament First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said all players must be tested before matches.
All lower leagues were suspended in January after a rise in coronavirus infections.
No dates have been announced for when fixtures will return in any of the leagues or the Scottish Cup.
Sturgeon said she hoped the news “will be welcomed by football fans across the country”.
Rod Petrie, Scottish FA president, said: “We are pleased that the First Minister has again recognised the importance of football in Scotland.
“The decision to temporarily suspend parts of the professional game played by predominantly part-time teams was not an easy one to take.
“None the less, given the sharp rise in infection rates caused by new strains of the virus at the start of the year, it was the right thing to do to assist the national effort to reduce its prevalence during lockdown.”
