Prior to COVID, Football SA had been working with a sub-committee, Creating a Positive Environment Committee. This committee had been working on developing a number of strategies that would assist clubs to promote positive behaviours in the football community and develop a safe and inviting environment for participants and spectators alike.

Unfortunately due to COVID, the focus has been on returning the sport to competitions and the strategies that had been discussed by this committee had not had the focus that had been intended. Not withstanding this, Football SA, has developed some resources for clubs that can be utilised to promote a positive culture and behaviour within the sport. Football SA will continue to work on expanding the resources in this area over the next 12 months. 

Below is the link to access the Let’s Focus on the Football resources which includes the Football SA Codes of Conduct. Football SA encourages all clubs and associations to promote and implement these resources.

Football SA would like to thank the members of the Creating a Positive Environment Committee for their work to date.

Let's focus on what's important. Let's focus on the Football. ⚽️
