The FA - Referee

Progression Scheme

A Path to Progress



Cambridgeshire FA are here to support our referees in achieving their aspirations within refereeing. Whether this be to become a County Level Referee or to officiate on the professional stage. Cambs FA are responsible for promotion from Level 7 - 6, Level 6 - 5 and Level 5 - 4 on the male pathway and Level 4W - 3W and Level 3W - 2W on the female pathway, as well as the newly launched Y1 to Y2 progression scheme for youth referees (Under 16's) 

The promotion scheme for 2022/2022 operates from 1st August 2022 to 30th April 2023 with information on the criteria available below. All games at Level 7 to 5 must be 9v9 or 11v11 football with offsides in operation 

 Further information, along with greater detail, is available in the Referee Progression Pathway Pack below.
