Become a referee

To become a referee with Worcestershire FA you must be at least 14 years old and live inside the county boundary.

Are you looking to increase your fitness, earn money or progress up the refereeing ladder? Maybe you just want to stay involved in the game after a long playing career? These are just a few of the reasons why people get into refereeing.

Find out more information below on where you should start your journey as a referee.

You can also follow our dedicated Twitter account for match officials: @WFAHFARefs


If you are aged 14 or over and interested in becoming a referee then you need to complete The FA Referee Course.

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we will not be running any Referee Courses until March 2021 at the earliest.
