Wonder what it’s like to manage a football game? Love football but can’t play as much as you did? Want a hobby where you can earn money?

Become a Referee

Or maybe you just simply want to understand why certain refereeing decisions are made?

Well, you're not the only one, more and more people of all ages, genders, races and abilities are getting into refereeing.

If you would like to become a qualified referee, you need to take part in a Basic Referees Course with your local County Football Association.

If you're still in the browsing stage, there are more details on our Information below, take a look.

To become a referee you must be at least 14 years old and a resident of England


Huntingdonshire Football Association has started their new recruitment drive for referees. Future Basic Referees course dates will be shown in the links below and are all based at suitable venues.

Whether you want to know just the basic Laws of the Game, Mini Soccer match day referee skills course, Futsal and Small Sided course or you want to become the next Football League or Premiership referee by taking the full referee course, we have just what you need. See the flow chart on the right side of this page.

A mini soccer course is arranged and will give candidates the ethos of mini soccer together with the laws associated with mini soccer. If you are interested in this course contact the Hunts FA email Wendy Chambers below.

Small sided and Futsal courses can be arranged by request.
