This weekend (Saturday, September 30 and Sunday, October 1), football at every level will unite to promote Play Safe, a national campaign to focus attention on safeguarding.

Led by The Football Association, the Play Safe campaign is endorsed by the NSPCC and supported by every level of the game, including the Premier League, EFL, Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship, and right across the grassroots game.

This year’s Play Safe weekend has two main messages:

  • ‘Everyone, everywhere, every time’ should have an understanding of safeguarding in football;

  • Everyone should ‘watch, listen, talk and act’ if they have any safeguarding concerns.

We are proud to be supporting Play Safe on our website and social media channels . Our pledge will see us wearing Play Safe Arm Bands and Pin Badges on Match Day, as well as raising awareness on Social Media.

Of course, safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, so if you haven’t already, why not make your own Play Safe Pledge? We encourage you to do so. There is a free awareness course for parents and carers
