The FA is delighted to launch the second year of the Respect and Fair Play Awards.

The FA remains committed to driving up standards of behaviour in football and the Respect awards allow us to celebrate those leagues, clubs and individuals that have taken a proactive approach to establishing high standards of Fair Play and behaviour.

What do we want to recognise?

Clubs, leagues, grass roots organisations, educational establishments or individuals that are making a significant contribution to improving the behavioural standards in football. This might be achieved through the following approaches;

- Educating teams, coaches, spectators or players
- Encouraging players, coaches, spectators or teams to strive for high standards of behaviour
- Dealing with poor behaviour
- Incentivising good behaviour
- Recruiting and retaining referees
- Valuing referees
- Improving a situation of established poor behaviour
- Captain’s who work well with Referees to help manage on pitch behaviour
- Referee’s who gain Respect for the way in which they mange games
- Campaigning in an effective and persuasive way
- The work of individuals that have improved the environment in which the game takes place

Who are these Awards For?

Respect is vital for all levels of the game from the Premier League to a local club or a grassroots Referee. There will be different categories of award to reflect the diversity of the English Game and the need for all levels to take collective responsibility to create a fair, safe and enjoyable environment in which the game can take place.

Please see the attached documents which explain how to nominate for these awards.
