SPECTATOR CODE OF BEHAVIOUR

A reminder to all Southern Branch Clubs and their Spectators. Please see the FFA Spectator Code of Conduct below.


A spectator at a Match or otherwise involved in any activity sanctioned or staged by, or held
under the auspices of, Football Federation Australia Limited or an affiliated Member Federation
or Club must:
(a) respect the decisions of Match Officials and teach children to do the same;
(b) never ridicule or unduly scold a child for making a mistake;
(c) respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability,
race, colour, religion, language, politics, national or ethnic origin;
(d) not use violence in any form, whether it is against other spectators, Team Officials
(including coaches), Match Officials or Players;
(e) not engage in discrimination, harassment or abuse in any form, including the use of
obscene or offensive language or gestures, the incitement of hatred or violence or
partaking in indecent or racist chanting;
(f) comply with any terms of entry of a venue, including bag inspections, prohibited and
restricted items such as flares, missiles, dangerous articles and items that have the
potential to cause injury or public nuisance;
(g) not, and must not attempt to, bring into a venue national or political flags or emblems
(except for the recognised national flags of any of the competing teams) or offensive or
inappropriate banners, whether written in English or a foreign language;
(h) not throw missiles (including on to the field of play or at other spectators) and must not
enter the field of play or its surrounds without lawful authority; and
(i) conduct themselves in a manner that enhances, rather than injures, the reputation and
goodwill of FFA and football generally.
Any person who does not comply with this Spectator Code of Behaviour or who otherwise causes a
disturbance may be evicted from a venue and banned from attending future Matches.
