How the Fair Play League is calculated

Key:
R/Y = Red & Yellow Cards - Maximum 10pts per Match (Red 3 pts, Yellow 1 pt)
P/P = Positive Play - Maximum 10 pts per Match
R/O = Respect Towards Opponent - Maximum 7pts per Match
R/R = Respect Towards Referee - Maximum 7pts per Match
B/O = Behaviour of Officials - Maximum 6pts per Match

To promote positive behaviour, The Football Association established a Fair Play competition, with all Barclays Premier League matches being assessed by delegates.

Teams are assessed in five categories, with a further category relating to the behaviour of the public.

The categories are:

  • Red and yellow cards
  • Positive play
  • Respect towards opponents
  • Respect towards the referee
  • Behaviour of the team officials

Delegates also assess the behaviour of fans with points being award for positive verbal support and recognition of outstanding play by the opposition.

The funding for the awards is provided by the FA Charity Committee.

The highest-placed club in the Fair Play League who have not qualified for a UEFA competition may have the chance to enter the UEFA Europa League via the Fair Play League. This is determined by whether the national association is in the top three ranking of  the UEFA Respect Fair Play Ranking, which based on all UEFA competition matches played at both club and national team level.
