Development and Courses
Liverpool County FA wants to help all referees reach their full potential.
If you're just getting into refereeing, the FA Basic Referee Course is perfect for you.
If you're a newly qualified referee, you can apply to join our Referee Academy, whilst the more experienced officials can put themselves to the test in The FA Referee Promotion Scheme.
From the moment an aspiring official books a place on the FA Basic Referee Course to the moment a referee retires from the game, we work to provide the best support to match officials.
