Refereeing Contacts Print E-mail

All referees in Australia are members of a referees organisation. These organisations coordinate the training and development of referees and appoint them to matches. They are a part of (or affiliated to) the football association, which is a member of the Football Federation Australia (FFA) through their state.

The FFA is responsible for the management of referees on the national leagues (A-League, W-League and NYL) and the selection of officials for the international FIFA panel, while each state looks after their own competitions and referees, and may further delegate responsibilities to local associations. AusRef is an independent organisation which may assist with general inquiries but not anything specific to a competition (eg. requests or complaints).

If you have a query specific to a competition or want to become a referee, please contact the relevant group below. Complaints about referees by members of the public must be directed to the football body in charge of the league, not the contacts below!
