Protocol for dealing with discriminatory abuse aimed at Players, Managers or Match Officials by Spectators at Grassroots level
This protocol specifically aims to deal with the match day process for match officials where discriminatory behaviour by spectators is witnessed at football matches at Grassroots level.
It is not intended to go into the wider details of what constitutes discriminatory abuse, nor the investigation process or the full procedure for dealing with other incidents of discrimination or abuse. Details on these matters can be found on www.TheFA.Com.
Any person that witnesses any form of discriminatory abuse should report the matter on match days immediately to the match referee and submit a follow up report to the local County Football Association. If a person does not feel comfortable in reporting the matter to the County FA they should report the matter to kick it out to email@example.com or through the Kick it Out app.
