Welcome to the Club’s and League area of the FA Respect Programme. Respect is the collective responsibility of everyone involved in football to create a fair, safe and enjoyable environment in which the game can take place.

The FA’s Respect programme provides tools for clubs from grassroots to elite football – to help ensure a safe, positive environment in which to play the game. In Herefordshire, our leagues are signed up to the FA Respect programme and all FA Charter Standard Clubs endorse the programme, with many embedding a specific Respect Co-ordinator within their club or league. Herefordshire FA strives to give leagues as much resource and information to help implement the FA Respect programme within their club environment.

The following resources are available to utilise in your club:

Football Foundation Respect Equipment Scheme.

The ‘Use Your Head’ seeks to help clubs & leagues combat the issues surrounding bad language in small stadia. Clubs visiting this site will be able to download flyers, posters, signage and personalise them with their own league logos.

The FA Respect Barriers scheme assists leagues to get appropriate barriers for implementation of the Respect programme at club venues and facilities. 

Respect resources are available for clubs to download and utilise.
The Respect Toolkit is available which will help you promote respect and fair play in your club.
Youth Club Respect Guide. Find out what your youth football club needs to do to keep our beautiful game beautiful.
Adult Club Respect Guide. What your football club should be doing to stamp out the ugly side of football.


All of our six Leagues affiliated to Herefordshire FA are RESPECT Leagues, which means they have committed to implementing the four themes of the RESPECT Programme and cascaded them to their clubs and referees, through club briefings, referee training programmes and additional activities.  These Leagues are
