Northern NSW Football Announces ‘New Referees Starter Pack’ to recruit more referees

February 28th, 2019

Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) has launched a heavily subsidised ‘New Referee Starter Pack’ to encourage more young players and volunteers to become referees.

NNSWF has identified that the costs associated with becoming a referee for the first time are a huge barrier for potential referees, particularly young referees. Thanks to the support of Umbro, Football Federation Australia and the local Member Zones, NNSWF has launched an all-inclusive, heavily subsidised starter package for first-time referees.

NNSWF CEO David Eland said, “The game’s participation, particularly among females continues to boom and it is vital that we have enough referees to officiate the ever-increasing number of competitive fixtures.”

“The New Referee Starter Pack significantly reduces the costs associated with becoming a referee for the first time. NNSWF is confident that the initiative will encourage more young players to have a crack at being a match official,” Mr Eland continued.

“NNSWF has bundled accreditation, registration, uniform and accessories into the all-inclusive New Referee Starter Pack for the heavily subsidised cost of just $100. It’s now much cheaper for aspiring match officials to get on the park and start earning pocket money.”

Each New Referee Starter Pack includes:
> Enrolment in Level 4 Referee Course
> Laws of the Game Book
> Referee Whistle
> Assistant Referee Flag
> Umbro Match Official Shirt (Black)
> Umbro Match Official Shorts
> Umbro Socks
> Set of Red and Yellow Cards
> Match Record Book
> NNSWF Match Official Registration Fee for the first season
> Member Zone Match Official Registration Fee for the first season.

“If you’re still studying at school, there’s never been a better time to come on board as a match official – with this significant saving and the Active Kids Voucher, you can potentially get started and make money for nothing,” Mr Eland concluded.

If you’re aged 13 and above and would like to find out how to become a referee and the next Level 4 courses in your area visit Referee Headquarters
