The officials for the 2008/09 Hyundai A-League and new National Youth League seasons have been announced by Football Federation Australia. The new NYL means the addition of two extra panels to the elite groupings within Australia.

There are now five elite panels controlling these competitions:

HAL Referees Panel
(A-Panel) Referees for A-League fixtures
HAL Fourth Officials & NYL Referees Panel
(B-Panel) Fourth Officials for HAL fixtures or Referees for NYL matches.
Supplementary Panel
New group, generally appointed as Fourth Official for NYL fixtures.
HAL Assistant Referees
NYL Assistant Referees

As usual, referees may receive appointments above/beyond their initial panel ranking depending on performance and the availability of others throughout the year (for example, if no A-Panel Referees are available for an A-League fixture, a member of the B-Panel will be appointed to referee.
