Silent Support Weekend

Make actions speak louder than words on 5 and 6 November


We want everyone in the grassroots football community to join in with the first National Silent Support Weekend to promote Respect in youth football across England.

We’re encouraging spectators and coaches to show their support during the match through applause only.  This will reduce pressure and confusion and give players a better opportunity to find their own voice and develop their game. 

So, all you have to do is not talk, you can applaud good play from both teams, and then tell us your thoughts about the experience so we can feed into a national campaign to make improvements for the future.

A digital link to a survey will be shared after the weekend for you to fill in to collect this information.

So join us and play your part on Silent Support Weekend on Saturday 5 and 6 November 2022.
