Recognising our referees

Northern NSW Football and Community Football Partner, Newcastle Permanent Building Society, have extended the annual Referee Recognition Weekend to a week this year to celebrate the region’s Referees.

The recognition of referees is integral to the Newcastle Permanent Community Football partnership with the Community Referee of the Month Award celebrated monthly throughout the 2017 Season.

Referee Recognition Week gives the football community the chance to show our appreciation to referees and match officials and show they are valued members of the soccer family who are respected by players, coaches and supporters alike.

It's time to show apprecitation to the region's referees.

On match days, clubs are encouraged to thank each of the referees and show their appreciation of their hard work that makes our game so enjoyable and safe.
