The FA launched the Respect programme in 2008 in response to behavioural problems at all levels of the game. Since then they’ve campaigned on behalf of the beautiful game and have seen an improvement in on field behaviour, the retention of more referees, a fall in the number of assaults on referees and provided a better environment for children to learn and enjoy football.
However, there is always more work to do which is why we’re looking for people to help us spread the word about the new Respect advert.
The video is a bit different to the previous FA Respect campaigns but really gets the message across. If you can help us distribute this content, raise awareness and get people talking about the importance of Respect then you’ll be playing your part in something worthwhile and important for the game that we all love.
Below you’ll find a link to the video on YouTube. Please feel free to embed it onto your club’s website and leave us a comment if you like it! It can also be posted on your Facebook timeline and you can tweet it out to your followers on Twitter.
