OKC Standard – Spirit…Passion…Pride…Respect
Oklahoma City is unlike any other city in the world. It was born in one day with the sound of a gunshot, and settled by a historic land run. One journalist from the land run wrote about it in such a way that describes not only the spirit of our great city but the essence of what the Energy aims to portray as a club. That is “an attitude that all things are possible if people are willing to take a chance and embrace the future without hesitation or reservation.”
That same spirit lives today as the city continues a great renaissance. Those great qualities make the Oklahoma City Energy proud to represent Oklahoma City in the world’s beautiful game.
Just like the great city we live in, the Energy aims to set the standard on all levels for being filled with passionate, prideful ambassadors for both the city and the game by committing themselves to the OKC Standard.
What does it mean to be a Green and be part of the OKC Energy?
To our Club, it means that you’re a part of some of the most passionate fans in the United States and that you help serve as the face of our great city and club. It means that you are part of a larger mission of helping unite and build support for soccer in this great city.
As a whole, by demonstrating the OKC Standard, we will create new Greens. And at the same time, reflect the heart of the entire community.
The heart of the OKC Standard is evident when we band together to make a sea of Greens and wave our flags high to show others who we are:passionate, prideful, and respectful all at the same time.
The OKC Standard is derived from the larger goals of taking the Energy to the highest possible levels in this country and as such is an adoption of the Major League Soccer (MLS) Fan Code of Conduct and Pledge to Fans. Disorderly behavior, including but not limited to racism, discrimination, sexism, homophobia, inappropriate language and disrespect towards fellow Greens or other fans have no place with the Oklahoma City Energy. How we conduct ourselves, whether at a stadium, at a watch party, and even online, through words or actions, reflect on both the Energy and our great city.
MLS Code of Conduct
Every Green should expect to:
It is up to every fan to display what it means to be a Green and to utilize the OKC Standard and to ensure everyone does as well. If you see individuals acting in a way that violates the OKC Standard, please inform them and us of their unacceptable behavior. Everyone must be held accountable for their individual actions.
Slurs, derogatory language, physical harm and/or threats of physical harm towards anyone are completely unacceptable and will be dealt with in the strictest possible terms. Any Green who doesn’t demonstrate theOKC Standard, whether at home or on the road, is subject to sanctions, including ejection, banishment, and arrest.
Our Energy comes from how we band together as one club, one city. We know that if the Greens believe in passionately supporting the team and embodying the OKC Standard, we will clearly display this club and City’s greatness.
Every Green must be responsible for their own actions as we are responsible for protecting our organization and the reputation of our wonderful community.
