Albion will show their support for The FA's Respect programme against Stoke City.

Brighton & Hove Albion will be working with the Sussex County FA to promote the Respect campaign at next Monday’s game against Stoke City. The campaign aims to help ensure a safe, positive environment in which to play football.

From grassroots football to the elite game, Respect represents the way in which The FA and clubs across the UK want to see football played, officiated and coached.
 
Albion support the set of values and behaviours that create positive footballing environments, and the club’s players will wear Respect t-shirts before kick-off next Monday, as they show their undivided support.

The FA National Respect Project Manager, Nathan French, said, “It’s fantastic to see the Sussex County FA working closely with Brighton & Hove Albion FC in championing Respect. Ensuring that football is played in a safe, fun and inclusive environment is so important and it’s positive to see both organisations working together on this important area.
 
“These types of events are great in raising awareness and to be able to do it when the game is live on Sky Sports is fantastic. The aim of any event like this is that people come away and think about how they can play their part in making sure the game we all love is For ALL!”
