This section is devoted to referees and includes information about all aspects of officiating. Referees perform a vital role in the game and with the growth in popularity of football the demand for match officials is increasing. The Surrey FA has over 1,000 registered referees, including many who officiate at the top level of the game. Please use this section to navigate your way through all the information you will need to become the best referee possible. The Surrey FA is here to support your refereeing journey so please do not hesitate to contact us for any concerns or queries.

Many of our referees started on courses organised by the Surrey County FA and are also members of one of the eleven Referees Societies in Surrey. If you have just finished playing and you want to give something back to the game or if you wish to start a career in refereeing then contact either Tim or Rod. Basic Courses are run throughout the year in all parts of the County to allow people to become qualified referees. More details about the different types of referee courses that are offered can be found under the heading Courses.
