The Football Foundation has launched a scheme offering your club the opportunity to purchase Respect equipment which, if used effectively, will help us to promote the beautiful game. The scheme offers 50% off the normal cost price of equipment.
The Football Foundation has teamed up with The FA to provide funding towards Respect Barriers and Respect Packs as part of The FA’s Respect campaign. The campaign aims to maintain acceptable levels of behaviour at grassroots games so that everyone can enjoy the game in a safe environment.
The FA has provided the Football Foundation with £200,000 for the scheme, which will cover both Respect Barriers and ensure that there is a de-marcated area along the touchlines at grassroots football matches within which spectators must stay, as well as Respect Packs which will include equipment such as captain’s armbands, marshal’s bibs and signage.
This Football Foundation scheme offers your club the opportunity to purchase Respect equipment which, if used effectively, will help us to promote the beautiful game. The scheme offers 50 % off the normal cost price of these items.
The Respect scheme will be open from 21 August 2012 and will remain open until the funding has been used up.
