A timely reminder…

With our 2014 NPL Victoria campaign kicking off tomorrow, the Club would like to make a timely reminder prior to our first competitive match at Knights Stadium.

 

7.9. Spectators’ Code of Behaviour 
 
It is important that all spectators at a Football Federation Victoria (FFV) approved 
fixture are able to enjoy the Match in a safe and comfortable environment. 
Accordingly, each person present at a FFV fixture must: 
 
Respect the decisions of the Match Officials, and teach children to do the same; 
Never ridicule or unduly scold a child for making a mistake; 
Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their race, colour, 
religion, language, political views, national or ethnic origin; 
Not engage in the use of violence in any form, whether it is by other Spectators, 
Team Officials (including coaches) or Players; 
Not engage in discrimination, harassment or abuse in any form whether lawful or 
otherwise, including but not limited to the use of obscene or offensive language or 
gestures, the incitement of hatred or violence or partaking in indecent or racist 
chanting; 
Comply with FFV’s ‘Conditions of Entry’, at all venues, and any ticketing conditions 
(NPL and NPL1only); 
Not carry, light or throw flares or missiles (including on to the field of play or at other 
spectators); 
Not enter the field of play or its surrounds without lawful authority; and 
Conduct them self in a manner that enhances, rather than injures, the reputation 
and goodwill of FFV, Football Federation Australia (FFA), and football generally. 
 
Any person who does not comply with this Code or who in the opinion of FFV causes 
or attempts to cause or is reasonably likely to cause a disturbance may be evicted 
from the venue and banned from attending future matches held under the 
auspices of FFV, for a period of up to 2 years from when the eviction occurred. 
Any offender who then breaches the ban order against them may be charged 
with trespass and subject to further penalties and sanctions, including the 
possibility of further legal action. 
 
It is the host Club’s responsibility to ensure this Spectator Code of Behaviour is 
implemented and enforced against all spectators.
