Football is the world’s most played and most popular sport, and futsal continues its fast rise in popularity. While coaches and players are key to the game (the game is for the players), so is another group – THE REFEREES.
In New Zealand, there is a clear pathway to help you achieve your goals in both football and futsal while contributing to the success and enjoyment of players, coaches and fans along the way.
Refereeing in football and futsal is for all ages and for both males and females. At the moment, we have referees that range from their early teens to their 70s. The younger you start, the better as there are some great pathways as a referee and assistant referee.
