Referee rules and regulations

The Referees Association


The Referees’ Association (The RA) and the RAFA Youth Council (RAFAYC) will play an important role in the National Referee Strategy. This is because their nationwide structure will allow them to supplement The FA’s development work and, mainly through local RA groups, will provide important support, guidance and mentoring (both formal and informal). Their work is especially important for new referees, young referees and all referees operating at grass roots.
