What exactly is ME Bank Fairer Play Round? Find out more about this weekend's feature round in the Hyundai A-League.
This weekend in the Hyundai A-League is the inaugural ‘ME Bank Fairer Play Round-, a round dedicated to encouraging fairer play, both on and off the field.
It-s putting an emphasis on going that extra step to see that everyone gets a fair go and playing by the rules and in the spirit of the game. It-s about a focus on respecting fellow players, referees, opponents and fans.
Acts of fair play happen, and more often than not go unnoticed, so ME Bank and the Hyundai A-League have joined forces to recognise the fair and sporting gestures that not only take place across the white line but also in the terraces.
As part of the round, a host of Hyundai A-League players have pledged their support to fairer play, acknowledging the spirit of gamesmanship with the intention that the broader football community will also get behind the initiative.
Football is the world game and as such, pledging to fairer play in football not only helps to build a positive reputation of the sport, encourage others into the sport and increase its popularity, but also demonstrates a football community that values fairness.
This is not to be mistaken for the fierce and competitive nature of the game that drives players and supporters alike to urge their team onto victory. Rather, it is about a mutual respect of what to play hard but also to play fair.
