Respect is the collective responsibility of those involved in football, at all levels to create a fair, safe and enjoyable environment in which the game can take place. It is the behavioural code for football.
The Respect programme was launched for the 2008-09 season and sought to build upon practical measures that progressive clubs, leagues and grassroots organisations had been promoting for some time. This included the use of Codes of Conduct and designated spectator areas.
Everyone involved in football has a role to play in addressing negative behaviour and encouraging a positive environment, in which football is enjoyed by all.
The FA has produced a number of guides, course modules, films and content to support the take-up of Respect at every level. Over these pages and through the links below, you should find all you need to adopt the principles of Respect. For further support, contact your parent County Football Association whose Respect lead officer will be able to help you.
