Football is the world’s greatest game for good reason.
It has the ability to thrill, to unite communities, create unforgettable moments and has the power to inspire future generations of players.
But our beautiful game has a problem. The passion and pride that fuel the game sometimes crosses the line into bad language and abuse.
The FA would like to issue schools and colleges with the challenge of developing campaign materials to help us with the Respect programme.
This could be a poster, a splash page, a promotional item, a short film, radio advert, graphic story, an app. or podcast to increase awareness of the impact of poor behaviour in football and the promotion of Respect.
The competition will be split into three categories:
- Primary and middle schools
- Secondary schools
- Further education colleges
Click here for more information and for details of how to enter the competition. You have until Monday 1 April to submit your entry.
The schools and colleges with the best entries will be guests of The FA at a big game and see their work featured at an exhibition at Wembley or perhaps displayed on the big screen.
The FA will acknowledge all entries with a certificate and present exclusive prizes to the winners.
