The registration fee is £20.00 per referee, and this is a national cost set by The FA.



Referees registering to officiate in youth football are required by The FA to have an in-date DBS and safeguarding training that is in date for the start of 2020-21 season.

The changes to the referee registration process are summarised below:


Registration Requirements

Changes in light of Covid-19

New & Existing Referees U16

No DBS Required

Free Online Playmaker Safeguarding module

Register as per usual

Referees 16+ in youth football

In date DBS

In-date SCW / Recertification

Where DBS checks expire between 01/03/20 – 01/10/2020 The FA will extend the date by the DBS check and must be renewed by 12 months in PFF. Referees will then receive standard notifications to update at the relevant time.

Where referees do not have an in-date SCW, CFA will monitor and ensure they do for 2021-2022 season, including those who can use the online recertification.

Cumberland FA have produced a short video to support Referees through the online Registration process. Watch below:
