We have today published our Media Essentials Guide for the 2021-22 season.  

This guide is produced each season to support print, broadcast and online journalists who are responsible for understanding our Rules and Regulations and ensure they report on any incidents accurately for their viewers, readers or listeners.  
Detailed background information is available in the form of step-by-step guides and timelines to explain the main on and off-field regulatory and disciplinary processes that football ‘participants’ could be subject to during the 2021-22 season.    
Any implications for English football following recent updates from FIFA and the International Football Association Board (IFAB) are also outlined throughout. 
If you have any questions on these topics during the 2021-22 season, please contact our Media Relations team in the first instance via 
Our Rules and Regulations are available in full here.
