FOOTBALL TO UNITE FOR PLAY SAFE WEEKEND

27 September 2023

City will unite with clubs across England this weekend to promote 'Play Safe' - an FA-led countrywide campaign to focus attention on the importance of safeguarding in our national game.

Endorsed by the NSPCC, the Play Safe campaign will be supported this weekend across every level of English football, including in the EFL, Premier League, Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship, and across the grassroots game.

The Bantams will support the initiative when Walsall visit the University of Bradford Stadium on Saturday (3.00pm), with City's captain on the day to wear a bespoke 'Play Safe' armband.

The FA’s Survivor Support and Safeguarding Advisory Group (FASSSAG) continues to support Play Safe, and said: “Creating safe environments in every football setting is a collective responsibility.

“It is really important that every single person in football - no matter if they are actively involved or on the sidelines - understands that they have an ongoing role to play.

“Knowing how to act on any concerns is vital and Play Safe is a key way to raise awareness so that everyone is vigilant and knows what to do if they become aware of any inappropriate behaviour.”

This year’s Play Safe weekend focuses on the safeguarding role EVERYONE has to play - coach, player, parent/carer, spectator or volunteer - to keep children and young people safe, no matter what the football setting.

EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE, EVERYTIME is encouraged to WATCH, LISTEN, TALK and ACT if they have any safeguarding concerns.
