The ReFspect Campaign is working with The Football Association, The Professional Footballers Association, Professional Game Match Officials (PGMOL), The Football Association of Ireland & County Football Association’s including other professional bodies to help raise awareness and eliminate problems experienced by referees at all levels of the game of football, in particular at grassroots level.


The ReFspect campaign is an initiative aimed at improving the behaviour of parents and spectators. By reducing the number of incidents of poor touchline behaviour we aim to maintain the current number of referees and help to attract many more new referees to the beautiful game.

We would like all football clubs, leagues and County FA’s to offer active support of the ReFspect  Program and raise awareness of ReFspect by signing up to support the  Don’t X The Line campaign.


Don't cross the line
