Contact Person

All requests for referees are received by the Referee Manager.

If your request is approved, a fixture will be entered into our online appointments system, "Whos The Ref" and a referee will be appointed by the appropriate Appointments Manager. Please be advised that while your request may be granted, there may NOT be a referee available and as a result one may not be appointed.

If your request is declined, you will be notified by email, along with the reason/s why your request was declined. In most instances, it's because your request was received too late.

If your request relates to a Tournament, these are not always loaded into Whos The Ref.

You can check for your fixture on the "Referee Appointments" web page.

If you have any other questions please contact:
