Training & Workshops

From local football to the FA Cup Final, all football needs referees

With over 600 registered referees officiating across Gloucestershire, we want to support all referees to progress their skills to their full potential.

Anyone can become a referee - whether you're looking to start a career in football, or wanting to give something back after you've hung your boots up - all that's required is a genuine passion for the game.

Gloucestershire FA offers a range of programmes for new and existing referees.
