Ever wanted to become a referee?

It’s a vital role – no game of competitive football can go ahead without someone in the middle – and we’re looking for more volunteers who want to take up the whistle.

There are two ways you can start a refereeing career:

Community Referee

This is where you become qualified to referee matches involving Cambridge FC teams.

Level 1 Referee

This qualification enables you to referee matches involving teams/clubs in our region, which are allocated to you by WaiBOP’s referee co-ordinator.
