Those on the side-lines at grassroots football influence the environment in which the game is played and have an impact on the players enjoyment.
Research shows 90% of footballers play better in a positive environment, therefore we need your support.
The FA’s pledge of positivity is a commitment by parents, spectators and coaches in grassroots football to use their influence to make the match day a more positive environment. You will commit to actively encourage players on both teams, to respect referees, coaches and other spectators. These simple behaviours are proven to make football a more enjoyable and positive experience for everyone.
