Whatever role you take in football it's important to know about the rules and regulations to ensure your and everybody else's safety.

Familiarising yourself with the Laws of The Game, Discipline matters, Safeguarding and Inclusion processes will help ensure everyone involved in local football can enjoy the game in fair, inclusive and safe environments.
