The Football Association has announced the fourth year of its Respect & Fair Play Awards.
The Respect Awards celebrate individuals, clubs, leagues and organisations at all levels of the game that have committed themselves to seeing the game played in a fair, safe and enjoyable way.
The FA is seeking nominations from clubs, leagues and individuals that have set a standard or experienced difficult days and taken it upon themselves to do something about it.
Through education, promotion, campaigning and dogged perseverance they have changed the behaviour of teams and individuals. Nominations can come from a third party or the individual, club, County FA or league themselves.
One of the awards on offer links the contribution of an individual with one of England’s greatest football ambassadors – Bobby Moore – one of our finest defenders who played the game with a dignity that still sets an example today.
Football in this country cannot take place without the structure offered by its league programme and leagues tend to have a close and influential relationship with their clubs.
For this reason The FA will reward those leagues that have promoted Respect and Fair play at a county, at a county, regional and national level with attractive prizes on offer.
Nominations are open until 11 March. Award winners will be invited to an awards ceremony at Wembley Stadium in May.
