Anchorians FA is supporting the FA’s ‘pledge of positivity’ which asks parents and spectators involved in under-18s grassroots football to commit to creating a more positive environment at matches across the country.
A recent survey conducted by The FA and Nielsen found 88% of over 1,000 grassroots participants cite parents as a driver of disrespect in grassroots football.
To have an impact on this off-pitch behaviour, The FA has launched the Pledge of Positivity, encouraging those on the side-lines to support all players involved and respect referees, coaches and other spectators. The Pledge is based on The FA’s RESPECT behavioural code of conduct which seeks to improve behavioural standards in football.
England captains Steph Houghton and Harry Kane are the first two people to make the Pledge of Positivity, Anchorians FC is encouraging everyone involved with our club to follow suit at https://pledge.thefa.com/
