Note: There are strict timeframes for referee requests
- Pre-season/Trial/One-off fixture: 7 days' notice minimum
- Tournament: 30 days' notice minimum
I want to...
All requests for referees are processed by the Referee Administrator, then advised to the Referee Manager.
If your request is approved, a fixture will be entered into our online appointments system, AppointMe 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 this occurs, you will be notified up to 24hrs prior to the fixture.
If your request is declined, you will be notified by email, along with the reason/s why your request was declined. This is usually because your request was received too late.
If your request relates to a Tournament, these are not always loaded into AppointMe, and are instead managed directly by the Tournament Appointments Manager.
