Refereeing Support

Administration 

For referee administration, UK is divided into UK North, UK Midlands and UK South. Other referee areas include Cyprus and Germany (BFG) included as Rest of the World (ROW).

Each area has a committee with the minimum of a Chairman, Secretary and Referees Appointments. Committees administer promotion assessments for Levels 7-6 and 6-5, referee appointments for Army Cups, Formation Cups, military leagues and local area referee training.

One of the responsibilities of the Divisional Referees Committees is to help develop, mentor and coach Level 9 referees. All new Level 9 referee are encouraged to make contact with the Appointments Secretary in their Division ASAP.

All appointments to games below Corps level are also made via the Appointments Secretary of the respective divisions.
