The ‘FAW Fair Play’ campaign promotes the important message of ‘Fair Play’ throughout Welsh football, which aims to inspire Players, Clubs, Match Officials and Supporters to maintain good on-field discipline by abiding by the Laws of the Game, in addition to respecting all members of the Welsh Football Family.
The ‘FAW Fair Play’ initiative reinforces the importance of mutual respect on and off the pitch, encouraging a reduction in on-field misconduct and promotes the ‘FAW Fair Play’ Code across the Genero Adran Leagues, JD Cymru Leagues, and Ardal Leagues.
To further encourage respectful behaviour that aligns to the ‘FAW Fair Play’ Code, the FAW incentivises and rewards Clubs who are taking a proactive role in reducing on-field misconduct. To achieve this, each month, the FAW publishes National Leagues Fair Play Tables and the Clubs who top their respective Fair Play table at the end of the season are awarded a ‘FAW Fair Play’ Award and a prize of £1000 that is available to be spent on improving their Club.
Llongyfarchiadau to the ‘FAW Fair Play’ award winners for the 2022/23 season on their great achievement. The winners include:
• Genero Adran Premier – Cardiff Met Women’s FC
• JD Cymru Premier – The New Saints FC
• JD Cymru South – Llanelli Town FC
• JD Cymru North – Colwyn Bay FC
• Ardal North East – Caersws FC
• Ardal North West – Denbigh Town FC
• Ardal South East – Newport City FC
• Ardal South West – Caerau Ely FC
The FAW Fair Play tables are determined based on players and team officials receiving red and yellow cards. A Club receives 4 points for every yellow card and 10 or 12 points depending on the type of red card offence. Clubs that promote fair play can receive a reduction in their disciplinary points when they evidence such instances.
To reinforce the importance of mutual respect on and off the pitch and encourage a reduction in on-field misconduct, an ‘FAW Fair Play’ week is taking place from Friday 22nd to Sunday 1st of October for all National League Clubs.
The ‘FAW Fair Play’ initiative is an element of the FAW’s wider ‘PAWB Values’ campaign which highlights the FAW’s core values of “Respect, Excellence and Family” where the FAW are committed to ensuring football is for everyone, where everyone can feel respected and supported across the game in Wales.
