Codes of Conduct

Codes of Conduct outline standards of behaviour that are required to ensure football remains safe and enjoyable for all participants.

The following Codes of Conduct are contained with the Irish FA Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy and Procedures. They encourage positive values throughout football and provide a platform to challenge inappropriate behaviour.

The Irish FA recommends that football clubs either adopt these in their entirety or individualise them to suit the needs of the club. All Codes of Conduct should communicated to all club members.
