The BFA has adopted a zero-tolerance approach to violence in football and in general. To this end it has launched its “Stop the Violence” campaign which is aimed at sensitizing person about this scourge that is plaguing our society.
We would like to inform our members that reported threats or abuse against officials and fellow players from supporters, fans, officials or players themselves will be forwarded to the police and the BFA will support the law in having these persons prosecuted.
Note that any player, official, club or its supporters found guilty of this behaviour will be subject to extreme disciplinary measures which may include expulsion from the BFA.
Thank you for taking note and be guided accordingly.
