Ahead of this Sunday’s huge Melbourne Derby with South Melbourne, Melbourne Knights FC would like to remind members and supporters of Football Federation Victoria’s (FFV) Code of Conduct.
Melbourne Knights is lucky to have some of the best football supporters in the country who have stuck by the Club through thick and thin, with the majority of those being well removed from the poor behavior that sometimes plagues our game.
A bumper crowd is expected at Knights Stadium for the big clash against Chris Taylor’s men, and that sometimes brings an anti-social minority.
With that in mind, the Club wishes to re-share the FFV’s Code of Conduct, which can be found here.
Speaking to melbourneknights.com.au ahead of the massive game, Club Secretary Melinda Cimera said the purpose of promoting the Code of Conduct was also to refute some assumptions about what you can or can’t do at National Premier Leagues games.
“There is a common misconception among some supporters and it goes something like this: ‘I’ve paid my $15 to get in, I can say and do what I like.’ This is not true at all because the Club is ultimately responsible for everything we say and do.
“I think it’s worth knowing that the choices we all make as Club Associates – meaning players, officials, supporters – have an impact on the Club we love.
“The Club is ultimately responsible for the behaviour of everyone associated with the Melbourne Knights.
“We encourage all players, officials and supporters to be aware of the Code of Conduct to ensure a great day of football against South Melbourne on Sunday at Knights Stadium.”
Tickets for Sunday’s all-important game against South Melbourne are available at the gate on matchday at Knights Stadium. Supporters from both clubs are encouraged to arrive well before the 3PM kick off to avoid any delays.
