Get into Refereeing
Make a difference to the game
chance to progress
Whatever format of Football or Futsal you are playing in one person will remain a constant presence: the referee. There are over 350 registered referees in Cambridgeshire, but we are always looking for more.
We support the development of our match officials from initially booking onto courses, to gaining promotion and also through the form of mentoring.
Reasons to become a referee
You can take the first steps to becoming a referee from the age of just 14.
If you want to progress through the levels there are specific pathways within both the men's and women's game that you can follow.
We'll ensure you get lots of helpful advice from the start including details about the laws of the game and guidelines on fitness and nutrition.
Once you have gained experience of officiating, you could get involved in one of our mentoring schemes.
This will give you an opportunity to hare information, ideas and advice with up-and-coming referees at society meetings.
