Caution regarding the use of Social Media

It is encouraging to see the ever increasing engagement by many in the football family in the use of social media. Mediums the likes of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter provide wonderful opportunities for everyone to engage collectively and share views.

Whilst positively embracing the use of social media the unsavory side is when contributors use such mediums as a platform to personally attack or defame others. It is therefore timely to remind and caution social media users that expressing individual views on such things as referee decisions and/or making defamatory personal remarks against individuals will not be tolerated by Central Football. Such behaviour is a breach of NZ Football’s Code of Conduct and where considered necessary charges will be brought against offenders.

I thank you for your understanding.
