Referee Registration Reminder

Referees who wish to re-register with Amateur FA for the 2018/19 season have until Friday 1 June to do so. A late registration fee of £10 may be issued if this deadline is missed.

The registration year runs from 1 June to 31 May each year.


You can register online via the "Whole Game System" (‘WGS’). Through WGS you can update your personal details and manage your record as a referee. Among other things you can renew your referees registration, pay the registration fee and order AFA products such as badges, ties and copies of the Laws of the Game.

In order to register online for the new season you must have:

• Registered within the last two seasons

• Completed the necessary safeguarding children requirements

• Have a debit or credit card

You access WGS using your FAN number and password. For referee registration, once you have logged in, on the first page click on the 'Referee Administration' tab then select 'Start Referee Re-registration for 2018-19'. Accept the pop up message which appears about CRC checks and follow the instructions from there.
