Coventry Sphinx Code of Conduct for Spectators

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 the club,
my County FA and /or The FA.
