Nominate your coach for their commitment, the players who champion team spirit, the club doing great work in your local community, the match officials who make the game fair and the volunteers who step up for every match.
Everyone can play a part in making the game great For All. That’s why there are lots of categories where you can nominate your Respect Champions for the role they play in football. This is their time to shine.
Watch this video to find out the qualities we’re looking for.
Who’s gone above and beyond to show Respect For All this season? Who’s raised the standards across every aspect of the game and has used Football to break down barriers in their community?
It takes more than a game to bring out the best in players. Does your Coach put respect at the heart of everything they do?
It takes more than a goal to make a winner. Know a player who always leads the field in respect, come win or lose?
It takes more than a cheer to show your support. Who fosters team spirit and fairness from the side-lines?
It takes more than good behaviour to lead by example. Are you proud of the support some parents show at each and every game?
It takes dedication to maintain your facilities. Who goes over and above to ensure your facilities are respectable and safe?
It takes more than paper to keep everyone on the same page. Who’s guaranteed to keep Respect at the top of the agenda?
It takes more than free time to make an experience rewarding. Who never fails to volunteer their dedication and support?
It takes more than a badge to have honour. Does your club always show exemplary behaviour on and off the pitch?
It takes more than tables to get results. Are the values of Respect part of everything your league does, from committee meetings to match-day experiences?
It takes more than a whistle to control a game. Who always leads with integrity and respects all who take part?
