FA Launches Code Of Conduct For England Players Misbehaving Off The Pitch
Published October 11, 2012
LONG TIME COMING: In London, Matt Barlow reported that "plans have been unfolding since February, following the example set by England’s cricket team," who banned player Kevin Pietersen in a recent high-profile case. The code will cover England players and includes social networking activity like Twitter as well as "offences of discrimination, including racism." The code of conduct "will exist independently" of FA discipline and under the auspices of the Club England board (DAILY MAIL, 10/10). Also in London, Henry Winter reported that having consulted with the Rugby Football Union and the England and Wales Cricket Board about their codes for players, the FA "aims to have its version signed by the squad" before next month’s friendly with Sweden in Stockholm. The FA Board and all the England coaches "have approved it" (TELEGRAPH, 10/9).
