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. Surrey County Football Association has over 1200 registered referees, including many who officiate at the top level of the game.

For general refereeing enquiries, please email

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.
