Tackling Discrimination

Changes to how County FA's process reports of discrimination

The FA and County FA's are determined to provide an inclusive football experience for anyone who wishes to play, coach, officiate, administer, support or be involved in any role in English football. An experience that is reflective of our diverse communities, safe for all and free from abuse and discrimination.

As part of The FA's commitment to deliver English Football's Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination plan, we have enhanced the way in which discriminatory cases are heard at grassroots level.

County FA's are responsible for all cases arising from Steps 5 and below and the details of these cases will also be reported centrally to The FA. Investigations will be managed by the relevant County FA (if the case has not already been escalated to The FA), and where appropriate, charges will be raised upon completion of a thorough investigation.

To support these changes, The FA has appointed an administration officer based at Wembley Stadium, and also an Investigations Manager who will work with each County to assist in the investigation of these matters.

The FA has also established a diverse independent central Chairman’s panel for those who will be selected to chair grassroots discrimination cases - This panel which was chosen for its skills, knowledge and experience, has undertaken the same mandatory training that The FA requires for all its Commission Chairmen, and includes members who are male, female, disabled, from ethnic minorities, identify as gay, and those who come from different faith backgrounds.

Every County FA is also establishing a local football anti-discrimination football panel. Commissions will be made up of a Chairperson from the central panel, a member of the local football anti-discrimination panel and a County FA Council member.

Sanctions for Aggravated Breaches 

Discriminatory behaviour is unacceptable and there is a mandatory minimum 5 match suspension and education programme for those found guilty of an "Aggravated Breach" of FA Rule E3.

E. CONDUCT

GENERAL BEHAVIOUR

3 (1) A Participant shall at all times act in the best interests of the game and shall not act in any manner which is improper or brings the game into disrepute or use any one, or a combination of, violent conduct, serious foul play, threatening, abusive, indecent or insulting words or behaviour

 (2) A breach of Rule E3(1) is an “Aggravated Breach” where it includes a reference, whether express or implied, to any one or more of the following :- ethnic origin, colour, race, nationality, religion or belief, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation or disability.

The sanction changes for a breach of E3 (2) are as follows –

  • for a first offence of face-to-face discriminatory abuse the sanction will be a mandatory minimum five match suspension in all cases
  • this sanction may be increased depending on the specific facts of any case
  • any further such offence will carry a mandatory minimum suspension of more than five matches, with an entry point of  ten matches
  • the mandatory minimum sanction will not apply to offences committed in writing or via mobile phones, the internet or TV (though it is likely a form of match based sanction will apply)
  • it will also not apply where the discriminatory term relates only to nationality (again it is likely a form of match based sanction will apply)
  • Club will be liable to be sanctioned if two or more of its Participants commit an act of discriminatory abuse in any twelve month period
  • In all cases the Participant may be fined as well as suspended, and will be required to undergo an education programme
  • Where a youth player is aged 12-15 (inclusive) and commits an aggravated breach of FA Rule E3(1) for the first time, a Regulatory Commission shall impose a suspension of at least five matches.  The Regulatory Commission may increase this suspension depending on any additional aggravating factors present.  A minimum of one match shall come into effect immediately and any remainder of the suspension shall be suspended on such terms and for such periods as the Regulatory Commission considers appropriate.
  • Where a second or further aggravated breach is committed by a youth player aged 12-15 (inclusive), a Regulatory Commission shall impose an immediate suspension of more than five matches, taking into consideration an entry point of an immediate suspension of ten matches, and any aggravating or mitigating factors present.
  • A disciplinary charge will not be raised for an aggravated breach of FA Rule E3(1) for a youth player under the age of 12, the primary aim in such cases will be education.

How do I report?

We recognise that there is under-reporting of incidents of racism and discrimination in the game and we encourage those who feel that they have been discriminated against to report their concerns.

We hope that the changes outlined above will help increase confidence in reporting discrimination cases.

Should you wish to report an incident of discrimination at level Step 5 and below, in the first instance, please contact your relevant County FA.

Should you need to contact The FA, Please use the details below:

Tel 0800 085 0508*

E-mail FootballForAll@TheFA.com

The contact details above are strictly reserved for those wishing to report allegations of abuse and/or discrimination such as incidents of racism or homophobia.

* If you are calling from a mobile telephone you may be charged for this call. 

Due Diligence

For charges against a club in respect of misconduct by spectators, a club will not be found guilty of misconduct if it can show that all events, incidents or circumstances were the result of circumstances over which it had no control, or for reasons of crowd safety, and that it had used all due diligence to ensure that responsibility was discharged.

In order to achieve compliance with Article 58 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code, FA Rules have been changed to a strict liability approach, so that the “due diligence” defence as outlined above shall not apply for clubs subject to an E20 charge for misconduct by spectators including direct or indirect reference to ethnic origin, colour, race, nationality, religion or belief, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation or disability.

Reporting Discrimination Films

The FA has launched the Reporting Discrimination videos - a series of short films to show players and fans of the game how to play their part in eradicating discrimination from football.

While giant leaps have been made to end discriminatory language and behaviour from the beautiful game, the authorities still rely on the help of the thousands involved at the grassroots level.

In parks and playing fields up and down the country we need you to carry on the good work and remain proactive in the battle against discrimination.

After all, if an incident goes unreported, it cannot be dealt with. 

So players and fans are being encouraged to ‘See It. Hear It. Report It.’

The animated films explain how to go about reporting incidents of discrimination – and this has to start at the grassroots level.

Written Reasons

To assist with transparency and consistency, we will be publishing the Written Reasons for discrimination cases for ALL County FA's here. These explain the decision making process of the Discipline Commissions in relation to such cases.
