Unacceptable Conduct Policy
Rutherglen Glencairn Football Club will not tolerate unacceptable conduct from the club’s employees, volunteers, committee members, players or supporters at our home stadium or at any other away football stadia.
We aim to create and maintain an environment where spectators can enjoy the game of football, safe in the knowledge that they are free from all forms of harassment, abuse, unacceptable or disorderly conduct including racism and sectarianism.
This policy applies for any football matches or events within Rutherglen Glencairn Football Club’s stadium.
We condemn racism in any form, either on or off the pitch. Rutherglen Glencairn Football Club aims to create and maintain a working and spectating environment free from racial harassment and abuse. Everyone connected with Rutherglen Glencairn Football Club has a responsibility to prevent racial harassment or abuse.
Any supporters (home or visiting) whose behaviour is unacceptable will face eviction from the ground and their actions will be reported to the police. Club members who conduct themselves in this manner face having their membership revoked and all spectators face the prospect of a life ban from our stadium.
Everyone associated with the club has a responsibility to prevent and discourage any form of abuse and as such are responsible not only for their own actions but also those of others. We would therefore encourage everyone to bring to the club’s attention any incident or behaviour (of individuals or groups of individuals) deemed to be in breach of this policy.
