Supporters Club - Sportsmanship Charter

Good sportsmanship is viewed by the Dublin GAA Supporters’ Club as a commitment to fair play characterised by generosity and genuine concern for others. Spectators, officials, coaches and participants are expected to be aware of their influence on the behaviour of others and model good sportsmanship. Spectators at Gaelic Games should:

  • Recognise that a ticket is a privilege to observe a contest and support Gaelic Games;
  • Be an exemplary role model by behaving in a manner that brings pride to their county;
  • Show support and encouragement for their team and coaches in the form of positive and constructive comments;
  • Recognise outstanding performances on both sides of the field;
  • Demonstrate respect for opposing teams through their comments and behaviour;
  • Respect the integrity and judgment of game officials. Understand that they are doing their best to support the game and admire their willingness to adjudicate in full view of the public; and
  • Enjoy the game in the company of opposing fans and respect their right to support their team

    Good sportsmanship is at the heart of Gaelic Games.

    The Dublin GAA Supporters’ Club trust that you will do your part in promoting these ideals.

    Dublin GAA Supporters’ Club, P.O. Box 4525, Dublin 2.
