Referee Registration for the 2018/19 season is now open.
As in previous years Referee Registration can be completed online via the Whole Game System.
Yes of course, here are a few videos providing step-by-step guides:
This video guide is also a step-by-step process on referee reporting:
A Referee who has failed to register as a Referee with The Association for between two and five seasons shall not be re-registered until they have successfully undertaken the Referee Course written examination. The affiliated Association may then register the Referee at their formal level (up to Senior County Referee) once they are satisfied with his/her competence. A Referee who has not been registered for more than five season must attend and successfully complete the Referee Course at which point they will be registered as a Junior County Referee.
Registration can be completed either online via Whole Game System; or for those who do not wish to complete the process online, details will be sent via email or by post where appropriate. However referees should be encouraged to complete this process online. It is a requirement that all referees should complete their registration before 31st May 2017. During the process referees will also be asked to complete the Diversity and Equality information.
To access the Whole Game System you will need to know your FA Number (FAN); if you have forgotten your FAN or password please click this link.
It is a FA requirement that all referees aged 16 and above who are officiating in 'Youth Football' must have completed an FA Criminal Records Check (CRC) which is valid and also completed Safeguarding Children; referees who have not completed this process cannot register until such time as this has been completed, and the Whole Game System will prevent you from registering until it is complete.
