Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) will again offer the Referee Starter package, which is fully supported by Football Far North Coast. The starter package eases the financial burden to become a match official and means that a new referee will need to pay just $140 to receive the following items and begin officiating in 2021;

  • Level 4 Referee Course materials
  • Laws of the Game Book
  • Professional Referee Whistle
  • Assistant Referee Flag
  • Black Umbro on-field Shirt
  • Black Umbro on-field Shorts
  • Black Umbro on-field Socks
  • Set of Red and Yellow Cards
  • Match Record Book and Inserts
  • Full Match Official Registration with FFNC (includes the NNSWF Match Official Registration Fee)
  • FFNC Match Officials Polo Shirt (to wear to and from games)

This represents a subsidy of over $100 for all new match officials!

The amount of $140 needs to paid upfront to Northern NSW Football prior to the course. If payment is not made at the time of registration, NNSWF will issue an invoice after receiving your course registration (which must be paid prior to the course).

Please contact FFNC if this upfront cost is a prohibitive factor in registering for the course.
