Silent Support Weekend
It’s time to change the game regarding behaviour on the sidelines. Play your part on Silent Support Weekend 5th and 6th November 2022
On Silent Support Weekend, actions speak louder than words. We want our leagues and clubs to join in with the first National Silent Support Weekend to promote good behaviour in Youth Football.
We’re encouraging spectators and coaches to show their support during the match through applause only. This will reduce pressure and confusion and give players a better opportunity to find their own voice and develop their game.
So, all you have to do is not talk, you can applaud good play from both teams!
Leagues can sign up to support the initiative and then give feedback to The FA about the experience, helping them to develop a national campaign to make improvements for the future.
League Officials can sign up by following the link below and completing the form.
Even if your league isn’t signed up to take part, individual clubs, teams and venues can still choose to take part themselves and see what difference it makes to young players enjoyment of their games. Just be sure to let your opposition know so they can join in too!
