Spectators Code of Conduct

We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game. 

This club is supporting The FA’s Respect programme to ensure football can be enjoyed by everyone in a safe and positive environment.

Play your part and observe The FA’s Respect Code of Conduct for spectators and parents/carers at all times.

I will: 

  • Remain outside the field of play and behind the Designated Spectator Area (where provided).

  • Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour.

  • Always respect the match officials’ decisions. 

  • Applaud effort and good play as well as success.

In addition, when attending youth games I will: 


  • Remember that children play for FUN. 

  • Let the coaches do their job and not confuse the players by telling them what to do. 

  • Encourage the players to respect the opposition and match officials. 

  • Never criticise a player for making a mistake -mistakes are part of learning.

I understand that breaches of the code may result in action being taken by Tigers Junior Football Club, Essex County FA or The FA.
