The Staffordshire FA Referee Promotion Scheme provides county officials with the opportunity to progress through the referee pathway. The promotion season commences on 1st March and ends on 28th February in the year following.
Is there a cost for this service?
A fee of £30.00 is required to be paid at the start of the promotion season. If you adhere to promotion criteria, whether you are successful in achieving promotion or not, you will be refunded the full fee. Should you be removed/withdraw from the scheme this fee will not be refunded.
