Tonight see's Stoke City FC and Brighton & Hove Albion working together to promote The FA's RESPECT programme. With the support of both Staffordshire FA and Sussex County FA, the Premier League fixture between the two teams will showcase the RESPECT programme. The programme 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.
Club players will be seen wearing RESPECT t-shirts before kick-off as both Club's show their undivided support.
The FA National Respect Project Manager, Nathan French, said: “It’s fantastic to see County FA's working closely 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!”

Due to take place on Saturday 10th February 2018, the two Clubs and County FA's will highlight the RESPECT programme and the impact that is has had on the grassroots game.
