Referees Associations & Societies

LOCAL REFEREE ASSOCIATIONS (RAS) PLAY A KEY PART IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT FOR REFEREES

Organised by groups of local people involved with refereeing, the associations are run for the benefit of referees by providing support, advice and guidance.
Through a subscription service they offer:

  • The opportunity to meet fellow referees of all levels
  • Guidance and discussion on the Laws of The Game
  • Lively debate on match day incidents
  • Access to events and activities involving referees at the highest level of the game
  • Plus loads more!

With all these benefits, and more, can you afford not to be a member?

For information about your local Referee Association Society please contact the local County Referees Association Secretary below:
