This Competition and its Clubs shall support the FA’s Respect programme. As such it recognises that everyone in football has a collective responsibility to create a fair, safe and enjoyable environment in which the game can take place. A Respect League values the courtesy and fairness by opposing players, club officials and spectators. The League and its Clubs will seek to play fixtures in a fair, competitive but not antagonistic environment.
The Competition shall require all players and club officials to have signed the FA’s Respect Codes of Conduct and produce these if so requested by the Management Committee.
Prior to each match the participating teams and officials shall conduct the “Respect” handshake and/or participating teams to offer “three cheers” and handshakes to the opposing team after the match.
The participating clubs taking part in the fixture shall identify a team captain designated with a captain’s armband who has a responsibility to offer support in the management of the on-field discipline of his/her team mates. If the participating players are considered to be too young to take on this role a member of the team coaching staff should provide this support.
Each home club shall make arrangements for the provision of designated areas for spectators. This area can be marked by an additional painted line, the use of cones, a roped off area or use of a temporary spectator barrier. The area for spectators should start two metres from the touchline on both sides of the pitch. Each area should run the full length of the pitch. It is recognised, however, that the alignment of some public pitches does not allow for this arrangement in which case other appropriate arrangements should be made.
Each team must have technical area marked out, by either a white line or cones for each teams. Clubs are allowed up to 3 officials allowed in this area. Everyone else must behind the barrier on the other side of the pitch.
