Assignment of Game Officials - Registration Required of Referee Assignors

CHICAGO (Wednesday, October 24, 2001) - Beginning September 1, 2001, all referee assignors must be certified and registered with the United States Soccer Federation.

No one shall assign or appoint a referee, assistant referee or fourth official in any match under the sanction or jurisdiction (direct or indirect) of the United States Soccer Federation who is not registered as a Referee Assignor with the Federation for the current year.

A State Association, league or tournament may appoint an unregistered assignor in an emergency, who may not serve that league past the end of the current soccer year without becoming registered (the soccer year is Sept 1 to Aug. 31).

This policy does not apply to the assignment of referees for any youth recreational and/or house leagues.

Effective September 1, 2002, all other matches must be assigned by registered United States Soccer Federation Referee Assignors. (See Policy 531-8, Section 7 - Approved by the National Council 7/01).

A list of instructors who are qualified to teach the Assignor Course can be found below.
