The FA’s Pledge to Positivity Campaign

Those on the sidelines 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.
