Respect is The Football Association’s direct response to a clear message from the grassroots game: We must improve standards of behaviour – on and off the field.’

Respect within The Football Association is aimed at helping us all to work together to change the negative attitudes and abusive behaviour on the sidelines and on the pitch. It’s a long-term commitment, but if we all play our part, together we can really make a difference.

In 2020/21 the implementation of Respect in East Berks Youth Football League was defined in 5 practical  sections:

Respect Codes of Conduct

There is a Code of Conduct for each of the main types of football participant:

• Players

• Spectators and Parents/Carers

• Coaches, Team Managers and Club Officials

• Match Officials – Referees, Assistant referees, Fourth Officials and Substitute Referees.

Designated Spectators’ Area/Line

There will be a demarcated area along the touchlines, within which spectators must stay or remain behind. The idea is to encourage parents and spectators to take a step back from the pitch and support the teams in a more responsible manner.
