Being a referee is like being part of a family, a community. It is important that all referees are valued as each and every one of them plays such an important role in the game of football.

RA-FA is a direct link with The Football Association.RA-FA supports, informs and develops match officials at every stage in their careers. Local activities are promoted and co-ordinated by The FA Regional Manager (Referees) in conjunction with County Football Associations.

Membership of RA-FA is available, free of charge, to all currently registered referees.
