FA Rule E20

Modified on Wed, 06 Sep 2023 at 04:31 PM

FA Rule E20 explains an organisation's responsibility for ensuring that its members behave appropriately. 

It states that: 

E20 Each Affiliated Association, Competition and Club shall be responsible for ensuring that its Directors, players, officials, employees, servants and representatives, attending any Match do not: 

E20.1 behave in a way which is improper, offensive, violent, threatening, abusive, indecent, insulting or provocative;

E20.2 conduct themselves in a manner prohibited by E20.1 in circumstances where that conduct is discriminatory in that it includes a reference, whether express or implied, to any one or more of ethnic origin, colour, race, nationality, religion or belief, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation or disability.

If a County FA believes that a Club's members have not behaved appropriately they may raise a misconduct charge against the Club. The most common example of this would be if there is a mass confrontation between players during a game.
