Spectators are, however, expected to respect the opponents and the referee.
They should appreciate the opponents’ performance regardless of the result
and in no way intimidate or frighten opponents, the referee or the opponents’
 members of FIFA may give a short
oral account of the teams’ fair play performance to explain the positive and
negative factors, which form the basis of their assessment. The account may
also point out any outstanding gestures of fair play from a player, official,
referee or any other person.

contest during its championships, based on an appraisal of the teams’ conduct
by a FIFA delegate such as the FIFA Match Commissioner, a member of the

FIFA will award the team that wins the fair play contest a trophy, a medal
for each player and official, and a diploma, all of which the team can keep
