More and more people of all ages, genders, races and abilities are getting into refereeing.

If you would like to become a qualified referee you need to take part in a Basic Referees Course with your local County Football Association.

FA BASIC REFEREES COURSE

Simply contact the referee development officer at your local County FA to get the ball rolling.

The FA also runs a course for budding Mini-Soccer referees. Again, this course is administered by County Football Associations.

MINI-SOCCER REFEREES COURSE

To become a referee you must be at least 14 years old and a resident of England.
