The Whole Game System provides referees at all levels with a comprehensive online administration package, with appointing, closed dates and discipline reporting being directed through the portal. This means referees at grassroots level can now enjoy many of the online processes currently available to colleagues operating at the highest levels of the game.

Following success of online referee registration over the past three years, we are now in a position to allow you commence registering as a referee for the coming 2014-2015 season, via The FA’s new Whole Game System. You will no longer be able to register by using the Member Services area of our website.

In order to register you will need to complete the registration process by clicking on the following link:   You will require your FAN number and password to log in. The cost to register will remain unchanged for the 2014-2015 season at £20.00.

Your password will be the same one that is linked to your FAN Number but unfortunately we do not have access to individual’s passwords, so if you do not remember your own password, you can re-set it by clicking on the following link:

A complete guide to the registration process has been produced by The FA. The link is given below and I would recommend that you take the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the content before starting the process: 

You will also be able to pay for additional items including membership to join the Referees’ Association, an FA Badge, a LRCFA Badge or a hard copy of the Laws of the Game.

Additional information on how to complete this process is given in the document attached to this article.

Any referee aged 16+ on 01 July 2014, wishing to referee Youth Football or Adult / Youth Football during season 2014-2015 onwards must ensure that your CRC verification checks have been completed. If your verification is not fully completed you will NOT be permitted to officiate in youth football.

The cost of this verification, for all referees classed as ‘Volunteers’ (Level 4 to Level 10) will be fully met by the County FA.

Full details of how to complete this process are given in the document attached to this article.
