As an FA Charter Standard Club you will have signed up to The FA Respect codes of conduct and you make a stand for good behaviour on and off the pitch. Now it’s time to wear your badge with pride.
1. Display your club’s commitment to Respect within your local community, at the entrance to your ground or on a pop-up sign at local authority playing fields. Mention your allegiance to Respect in local listings or add the logo to promotional posters
2. In fact, add The FA Respect logo to all club communications and explain what it means to your club. This will impress current members, new players/parents and local companies who may be interested in sponsorship.
3. Use positive stats to secure good media headlines. Since joining the Respect programme have your dissent bookings gone down? Have you attracted more players to the club? Do you get more qualified referees now?
4. Hold a Respect fundraiser to help purchase Respect official goods such as pitchside barriers or kit badges for your teams.
5. Run a Respect Award with monthly and seasonal prizes, awarded to players or teams with the best Fair Play record in the club. Ask a local business to sponsor by donating prizes. This will help your current members to understand your club’s commitment to good behaviour.
