Witney Vikings Youth Football Club

Silent Support Weekend – 5-6 Nov 2022

The weekend of 5-6 November 2022 is the FA’s first National Silent Support Weekend to promote good behaviour on touchlines across grassroots youth football. 

Across the National Silent Support Weekend, we’re encouraging coaches and spectators to show their support by applauding good play from both teams, but refraining from talking or shouting.

The aim is to reduce pressure on youth players at grassroots level and give them a better opportunity and environment to find their own voice, improve their on-pitch communications skills, develop their own game, and most importantly have fun.

Please have a look at the following 1 minute video:
