Code Of Conduct for Spectators


We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game.

This club is supporting The FA's Respect programme to ensure football can be enjoyed by everyone in a safe and positive environment.

Play your part and observe The FA's Respect Code of Conduct for spectators and parents/carers at all times.

I will:

  • Remain outside the field of play and behind the Designated Spectator Area (where provided)
  • Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour
  • Always respect the match officials' decisions
  • Applaud effort and good play as well as success

In addition, when attending youth games I will:

  • Remember that children play for FUN
  • Let the coaches do their job and not confuse the players by telling them what to do
  • Encourage the players to respect the opposition and match officials
  • Never criticise a player for making a mistake -mistakes are part of learning

I understand that breaches of the code may result in action being taken by my County FA and /or The FA.
