Spectator Code of Conduct

SPECTATOR CODE OF CONDUCT

Montgomery United is proud of our players and teams and appreciates the passion of our parents and spectators and their enthusiasm for the game of soccer.  In an effort to encourage appropriate and productive sideline behavior, and therefore showcase the performance of our athletes both on and off the field, MonU sets forth the following standards or spectator conduct before, during and after matches:

  • Take a position on the opposite half of the field from the opponent’s supporters.
  • Do not address remarks to referees, opposing players or opposing fans.  This does not apply where remarks convey genuine friendship  and encouragement.
  • Never use foul or abusive language or obscene gesture.
  • Do not make remarks towards your own team players that make mistakes.  This is the job of the coach.  If you are aware of the error, you
           may rest assured that the player is also aware.
  • Applaud superior play by both teams.
  • Give consistent support to coaches and managers, whether winning or losing.  Coaches are giving hundreds of hours to their players and
    are committed to their continued improvement as a coach.  In winning, they deserve your congratulations, in losing, your encouragement.
  • Always stay at least 3 yards away from the playing field.
  • Cooperate immediately with any referee requests.
  • Do not address referees or officials at any time.
  • Avoid comments and gestures that express disagreement with referee calls.
  • Do not attempt to discuss any of the following before, during or after (at least 24 hours) the match:
  1. Playing time
  2. Position or positions played
  3. Strategy or system of play
  4. Training methods
  5. Referees
  6. Other athletes

Persons who cannot conduct themselves in the above manner are not welcome at any MonU event.  For individuals who persist in disrespectful and/or abusive behavior, the following may occur:

  • You will be asked to leave the playing area by a member of the officiating crew (referees).  In this case, play will be suspended until you do so. Failure to respond to such a request within 2 minutes will result in a forfeit for the spectator's team.
  • You will be asked to leave the field and/or facility by a representative of MonU.
  • Any individual removed from a game will be required to serve a minimum one game suspension.
  • Any individual who is removed from a game a second time will be required to meet with a MonU representative to discuss ongoing
           participation in MonU activities.
