Recognising and rewarding our match officials
Every season, the Amateur FA host a recognition and awards event to celebrate the work, achievements and outstanding service of our registered referees.
The event is supported by the Amateur FA Referee Committee, who issue three awards, as well as long-service achievements of 15 and 30 years. In addition, the RefHub presents four further awards, whilst the County FA Appointments Officer announces the County Cup Final appointments.
The current and former recipients of these awards can be found below.
