Protecting the Integrity of the Game
Protecting the integrity of the game
As the Governing body for the sport, we are responsible for ensuring that the Rules and Regulations of the Football Association and the integrity of the game in Berks & Bucks is upheld.
We are here to support your journey in football by leading and protecting the game and in turn making it a safer and enjoyable environment for you to stay involved for a lifetime.
Football is a contact sport and a passionate game, and sometimes match officials and the County FA are forced to take disciplinary action against our participants when they overstep the line.
On these pages you can find Frequently Asked Questions about football discipline, along with the relevant sections of The FA handbook which governs on- and off-field discipline and a series of one-page reference guides produced by the Berks & Bucks FA covering the key disciplinary procedures at Step 5 and below.
If you have any questions relating to discipline at Step 4 and above, please contact The FA directly via Discipline@TheFA.com
Across the various pages within the Discipline section of our website you will find links to many different documents; all of which have been created to provide additional information, support and/or guidance on the various processes and procedures relating to Discipline/Governance.
For your ease, all of these documents are also available, here, for you to download and keep:
