Get on with the game: respect the referee

Just stumbled upon a video posted on YouTube by the Nothinhamshire FA. It shows that children copy behaviour of star players.

Get on with the game - why we need referees.

Get on with the game – why we need referees.

The text the FA wrote below the video: “Do young players copy professional footballers? See the Premier Leagues advert for their version of The FA’s Respect Programme – ‘Get On With The Game’.”

The FA’s respect program has a special page for kids, to explain them how important respect for a referee is.

All professional football matches need a referee. They are there to help make football a safe and great experience for everyone. Next time you’re playing football remember that you can play your part in this too by playing fairly, accepting the referee’s decisions….and getting on with the game!
