Queen's Park Rangers have been recognised by the FA Women's Premier League (FAWPL) for its continued support of the FA Respect Programme and other FA inclusivity related initiatives.
It follows the R's far-reaching work to actively promote respect throughout the 2014-15 season, from pre-match handshakes and good discipline to supporting campaigns such as Rainbow Laces, Football Remembers and Football v Homophobia.
The award is the second of a successful year so far for Martino Chevannes' side after being named the FAWPL's Respect Club of the Month during January.
"I'm absolutely delighted QPR Ladies has been recognised by the FA Women's Premier League," manager Chevannes told www.qprlfc.co.uk. "To have been selected from 72 clubs across six divisions is an incredible achievement.
"It was pleasing to be named Respect Club of the Month in January, but this award is testament to the work the club has done throughout the season.
"Credit has to go not only to the staff and players, but the whole football club for the support and involvement that's put into all of our off-field initiatives.
"As a result of the commitment shown by The FA to women's football, the game is making giant strides and we're proud to be playing our part. We look forward to continuing our progress - both on and off the pitch - next season."
Carol West, FAWPL Chairman, added: "The FAWPL is a proud supporter of the FA Respect programme.
"QPR Ladies has demonstrated consistently over the course of the season that it is committed to ensuring football is played in a safe, enjoyable and inclusive environment through promotion of Respect and other anti-discrimination initiatives.
"We are delighted to recognise their efforts and thank everyone at the club for their continued support."
