Misconduct Reporting


the importance of misconduct reporting

Whenever a Referee cautions or dismisses a player from the field of play or is reporting other forms of misconduct, he or she must report the incident or incidents within 2 days of the match (Sunday not included).

This report must be submitted over via Whole Game System (click here for instructions). The purpose of The FA launching the Whole Game System is that this will make the process of reporting discipline easier for you in the long term.

The Whole Game System is accessed by using your FAN number or email address and password and pre-populates your match data so that you can submit discipline reports via the internet 24/7, either via a desktop, mobile phone or tablet device.

To login to the Whole Game System please click here and ensure that you have your FAN number and password ready. If you have forgotten your password then you can reset this on the Whole Game System website.

the role of assistant referees

Assistant Referees shall - where the referee has dismissed a player from the field of play or is reporting other forms of misconduct - prepare and submit a report in a similar fashion as the match referee via the Whole Game System if they have been involved.

A record should be kept of cautions issued in case the Football Association requires the Assistant Referee to submit a report on any incidents.

personal hearings

Referees and Assistant Referees must attend Personal Hearings when required under Surrey FA Rules.

If a Referee or Assistant Referee fails to attend then they will be reported to the appropriate authority however Match Official appointments at Contributory League Level or above, already received, take precedence over requests to attend Personal Hearings.

Any Referee having accepted a request to attend a Personal Hearing is then required to close the date with all appropriate Competitions.

For more information please click here to view the ‘Referees Guide to Personal Hearings’.

reporting cautions

Please ensure the instructions are followed and the offence (C1 to C7) is inserted. If you are reporting a C1 offence, please ensure you enter the FA Code to define the sub-category of offence (such as Foul Tackle or Handball).

reporting red cards

This should be used for reporting dismissals and also to be used to report a player receiving two cautions in a match. Please ensure your report is clear, accurate and contains all of the language used.

reporting misconduct

If you need to report misconduct outside of a caution or red card, please use the Extraordinary Incident Report form via Whole Game System. You must ensure that your report is clear, accurate and contains all of the language used. For help with reporting misconduct, please consult The FA’s guide to reporting misconduct by clicking here.
