Thank you for visiting the home of refereeing in Liverpool. Over the following pages you will find all the information you need to either support you begin refereeing, or help you along your existing refereeing journey.

Liverpool has around 800 referees and we value and recognise the important role they play in both grassroots and professional football. With around 1000 grassroots football matches played the County FA area alone each weekend, we need to maintain a strong and reliable workforce of match officials.

The Referees Department here in Liverpool prides itself on its successful recruitment of match officials, leading to an increased coverage of games year on year. Furthermore the quality of our training and development programmes not only benefits local football by increasing the standard of referees but also gives our referees the foundations to develop themselves and pursue a career in refereeing.

Our office is open Monday – Friday from 9am to 4.45pm so please feel free to contact us with any questions.
