This page allows Army FA Referees to see when they have been appointed to officiate in Army FA sanctioned matches. The Army FA Referees Committee will update this page on a regular basis with the latest Appointments Bulletin for all divisions within our boundaries.

The Army FA referee appointments bulletin can be found on this Google doc.

For appointments within divisional areas, please contact your local Divisional Referee Appointments Secretary.

The above link will take you to a Google Docs account held by the Army FA. This document is a live document and is updated daily. This is the preferred method of checking appointments, but please be aware that this link will not work on an MOD computer, so you will need to access this from a personal computer.

Appointments that need to be confirmed with the Appointments Secretary will be highlighted in bold blue italics. Any appointments that have been rejected for various reasons will be highlighted in red bold. Volunteers are sought for certain games and these are identified by bold green italics.

To confirm or reject an appointment, please email Chris Hastings or Steve Finch. Short Notice Cry-Offs need to be made via telephone on 07833 306367 or 07789 444417.

We hope the above procedure is clear. However, should there be any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Steve Finch in the first instance.

Army FA match officials can also be appointed by The FA to The FA Competitions. These competitions include The FA Cup, FA Trophy, FA Vase, FA Womens Cup, FA Youth Cup and FA County Youth Cup. These appointments are prestigious for any referees and can range from the opening round through to the Final.

To see a list of Army FA Referees who have been appointed to FA Competitions, please visit Army FA Referees - FA Competition Appointments (Google doc).

Referee Match Fee

Match fees for all matches are set annually by the United Kingdom Armed Forces Association (UKAF). The Referees’ Sub Committee reviews the fees each season and makes recommendations for change to the CSFA AGM. The fee will apply to all matches, including Corps, Inter Corps, Division competitions, Army Challenge Cup and Minor Units Cup competitions and non competitive matches.

The fees for Final Ties may be replaced by the presentation of a suitable memento. Unless otherwise stated, where appointed, a fourth official is to be treated as an Assistant Referee.

The current level of fees (subject to change) is:

Referee: £15 / Assistants: £10

Massey Trophy: Referee: £20 / Assistants: £15

The home club is responsible for payment.
