Whether you want to be the next Referee of Premier League Matches, European Matches and World Cup Qualifying Matches, or even if you wish just to officiate in public park football, then the Fife Referees Association offers a fantastic opportunity for YOU to become a fully qualified football referee.

If you need an incentive, after exceptionally hard work and commitment, Fife now has Lorraine Clark as its first female FIFA Referee who officiates in matches in Europe and around the world as well as in the Scottish Football League and Junior League. The opportunities in refereeing are abound for you, both men and women

There has never been a better time to become a referee. The Youth Development Initiative provides opportunities for newly qualified referees to officiate at matches involving the talent that will hopefully one day be playing professional football.
