Green Card


Green Card

The Green Card is a scheme which will be used to promote Fair Play, the correct approach to the game, and it will form part of the criteria used to determine which teams progress from Local Fun Days to Future Football Cup events.

There will be 1 green card awarded to each team, per game – provided that they fulfil each of the following criteria –

1. Line-up & shake hands before each game with opposing team & game officials.

2. No foul or abusive language used during the game, by either players or coaches.

3. No over aggressive play during the game.

4. No fighting - either with teammates, or opposing players.

5. If a foul is committed, both players involved must shake hands before play restarts.

6. Respect shown to game officials, other players & coaches at all times.

7. Line-up & shake hands after each game with opposing team & game officials.

Each team that fulfills all of these points will receive a green card – 1 for each game. Teams must have achieved a green card in all of their games, as well as fulfilling other criteria, to be eligible to go forward to Future Football Cup events at regional and national levels.
