Match Officials are a vital part of the worldwide football landscape. From Grassroots football right through to the Hyundai A-League, Northern NSW Football supports, encourages and thanks the thousands of match officials working every match day across Northern NSW to ensure that players are safe, playing by the rules and most importantly enjoying their football experience.
Newcastle Permanent Community Referee Recognition Program
Northern NSW Football is pleased to announce the introduction of the Newcastle Permanent Community Referee Recognition Program in 2018.
Referees make a significant contribution to our game and we should recognise them for their valuable contribution through stepping onto the field to control the game and creating a positive experience for players, coaches and spectators as a result!
Every month, NNSWF in conjunction with its seven Member Zones will select one (1) registered Referee from each Zone to be awarded “Newcastle Permanent Community Referee of the Month”.
Each winner will be awarded a certificate recognising their achievement, along with a jacket, cap, water bottle and a referee card set. Their contribution to football will also be recognised on the NNSWF website network and social media platforms.
From the pool of monthly winners, a “Newcastle Permanent Community Referee of the Year” for each Zone will be recognised.
This final pool of Zone winners will be assessed and one will be awarded the “Newcastle Permanent Community Referee of the Year” announced at NNSWF’s annual awards night. This winner will receive an award plus a $250 First Touch Gift Voucher!
All member clubs, fellow referees and players will be able to nominate referees via the link below and provide their details and a brief description of their contribution to football.
Nominations can be submitted by completing the form below.
