Every season thousands of referees up and down the country leave home and start their time at university.
Refereeing with a new County FA offers students an opportunity to integrate both within the local football community and university life. Refereeing will also provide an income to support studies.
Moving to Gloucestershire
Referees moving to study in Gloucestershire have a wide range of opportunities available in the grassroots game and the university sport scene.
When you move to Gloucestershire, simply confirm with the Gloucestershire FA and we will be able to affiliate you.
The process is easy, often completed with one email or phone call.
To discuss the options available to you or to affiliate to the Gloucestershire FA, please contact our Referee Development Officer, Roger Vaughan.
Referees that leave Gloucestershire to study in other parts of the country will need to go through the process of affiliating with their new County FA.
Once this is completed, you will continue refereeing as normal.
