Referees are a vital part of Australian football’s DNA - from grassroots through to the professional game.
Football Australia has overseen the transformation of the professional game over the past 18 months putting in place a new governance model in relation to our Professional Leagues. As we adapt to this new model and continue to evolve as a game, the arrangements for elite referees represent the final changes that need to be implemented.
To that end Football Australia recently confirmed a new structure for referees and today advertised for several new positions, including a Head of Refereeing to lead the new department.
Football Australia can confirm that it is also holding discussions around contractual terms with A-League referees.
The FFA Cup and A-League trial matches will go ahead as scheduled and referees have and will be appointed for these matches.
