In response to widespread concern to problems that were being experienced at many levels of football, the FA Respect Programme was launched at the start of the 2008-09 season.

Respect is The FA’s programme of activities to combat unacceptable behaviour in our game at every level, both on the pitch, and from the sidelines. It features four practical steps to positively influence every game throughout the country as well as an integrated education programme and awareness campaign.

Addressing unacceptable behaviour was the No.1 priority emerging from the biggest opinion survey to date of grassroots football in England.

Respect will also provide added momentum behind four National Game Strategy priorities:

* Referee recruitment and retention
* Participation within youth football
* Coaching and player development
* Safeguarding children
