The FA Futsal Referee Course


The FA Futsal Referees Course is designed for anyone aged 14 and over who wants to join the fast-paced sport of Futsal. Futsal has a pathway from the local sports hall through to refereeing on the international stage. Futsal referees play an integral role in ensuring all participants enjoy their match day experience, helping create a competitive, fair, safe and enjoyable playing environment.

Whether you want to referee in youth and adult leagues, men's or women's Futsal, The FA Futsal Referees Course is the starting point for your career. Refereeing is not only rewarding in a Futsal environment, but the social and life skills that come from becoming a referee extend far beyond your initial expectations.

This course is designed to provide training for those who want to referee Futsal and will focus on the following key areas:

  • Understanding the laws of Futsal and their practical application.
  • The realities of your role - dealing with practical situations including misconduct.
  • Putting your skills and knowledge into practice by refereeing live games.

It is anticipated that the majority of learning will be facilitated in a practical environment.
