Referee Pathway

This page shows the “Pathway” that referees can follow – all the way from Mini soccer to the World Cup!

It will take between 10 to 20 years to move from a Mini, Youth or District to a FIFA referee, and it takes a lot of hard work along the way! You can of course, move at your own pace; and, if you wish to remain at any particular level, that is fine, too. However, the experience and rewards you gain will be priceless. Who knows? Someday, you could be refereeing the FIFA World Cup Final!
