Referees have to register annually with their parent County FA in order to be appointed to games by leagues and other competitions.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO REGISTER?
It costs £20 per season to register with The FA.
Since the launch of The FA's Whole Game System, Referees are now able to complete their Referee Registration online (please click the Whole Game System to log on to the site). The online process is much simpler than in previous seasons and cuts down on unnecessary paperwork and administration. In order to register online you must log-in with your FAN and password, then follow the on-screen instructions.
