The rules below will be enforced.

Abuse of any kind to officials, players and opposing spectators by anyone that is reported and found guilty will be severely disciplined.

Clubs will also become responsible for their officials, players and spectators conduct and a two warning rule will be introduced.

Anyone within their club found guilty of touchline misconduct the club will be issued a first warning. If anyone within their club offends again and they are found guilty then a final warning will be issued to the club.

If there is a third offence within their club and they are found guilty then a £250 fine will be imposed on that club.

THIS WILL BE ON TOP OF ANY DECISION GIVEN BY THE DISCIPLINE PANEL TO THE PERSON/S CONCERNED IN THE THREE STAGES.

Spectators found guilty will receive touchline bans and monetary fines.

Coaches found guilty will receive touchline bans and possibility of their coaching licence removed.

Touchline Managers found guilty will receive touchline bans and their TLM ID badge removed (you are there to support not abuse).

Please ensure all personnel within your club are made aware of the consequences should they take inappropriate action on match days.
