We all bear a collective responsibility to set a good example and help provide a positive environment in which children can learn and enjoy the game. 


Play your part and observe The FA’s Respect Code of Conduct for spectators at all times


* Remember that children play for FUN.

* Applaud effort and good play as well as success.

* Respect the Referee’s decisions even when you don’t agree with them 

* Appreciate good play from whatever team it comes from

* Remain behind the touchline and within the Designated Spectators’ Area (where provided)

* Let the coaches do their job and not confuse the players by telling them what to do

* Encourage the players to respect the opposition, referee and match officials

* Support positively. When players make a mistake offer them encouragement not criticism

* Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting, or abusive language or behaviour  

I understand that if I do not follow the Code, any/all of the following actions may be taken by my club, County FA or The FA:


I may be:

* Issued with a verbal warning from a club or league official 

* Required to meet with the club, league or CFA Welfare Officer

* Obliged to undertake an FA education course

* Obliged to leave the match venue by the club

* Requested by the club not to attend future games

* Suspended or have my club membership removed

* Required to leave the club along with any dependants  

In addition: 

The FA/County FA could impose a fine and/or suspension on the club
