Fresno Football Club exists to provide a top-class, inclusive and dynamic sporting experience for the Central Valley. Fresno FC is inclusive of everyone; matches at Chukchansi Park are a place where everyone is welcome.

Respect for everyone at each Fresno FC home match, from fellow and opposing fans and players to match officials and coaches, is crucial to fostering the inclusive atmosphere and culture of the club. Additionally, Fresno FC understands and has respect for the diversity of our fans and the footballing traditions that they enjoy.

During the second half of Saturday’s home opener, several chants were sung by Fresno FC supporters that have no place at Chukchansi Park. The club, in no uncertain terms, does not condone or support the use of offensive language. 

Should fans have concerns at matches, they are encouraged to send an email to community@fresnofc.com or visit the Courtesy Booth located near Gate 2 on the concourse.
