Code of Distinction

BYTOWN SC CODE OF DISTINCTION

WE ARE POSITIVE AND INCLUSIVE – ON AND OFF THE FIELD

Bytown SC is an organized supporters group that exists to champion and support the Ottawa Fury F.C. professional soccer team and the community in which it is played.

Being a member of the Bytown SC means you are a part of something bigger than yourself.  Together, we can make a difference on and off the field. It also means you have a responsibility to be positive and inclusive.

As members of the Bytown SC we will respect others regardless of whether they respect us.  We vow that we will not tolerate or participate in racism, discrimination, homophobia, transphobia, threats of physical harm or acts of physical violence. We will not perpetuate unwelcome sexual advances, sexual harassment or sexual assault, use racial slurs, hate speech, or any other disrespectful word, either in person or online in any language.

On game day our passion rises to the surface and our love for our team shines strong.  To ensure the enjoyment for everyone at events, games and watch parties the Bytown SC and its members will never throw objects onto the field of play, lead, encourage or participate in inappropriate chants or engage in excessive drunken, disruptive, or disorderly behavior.

We pledge we will always behave with distinction in the stadium, at all events and online.
