Referee Department create new Registration Portal

The FAI Referee Department have opened registrations for the 2020/2021 season.
23rd Jul 2020

Due to the cancellation of the National Seminar Programme, the Referee Department were unable to facilitate the annual registration of our match officials for the upcoming season.

To remedy this, the Department in cooperation with the National Referee Committee have created an online registration platform which provides all of our match officials with the facility to register for the 2020/2021 season. The traditional paper based registration method is also available.

To facilitate our match officials and make the registration process as accessible as possible the National Referees Committee has extended the current registration period until August 31st. This extension will give referees more time to complete the registration process and allow the Referees Department time to ensure each referee is registered for the upcoming season.

The registration process is straightforward and is available at the link below. Click on the button and complete the online registration form and submit with payment of €25.00. Once complete you will receive an email receipt with confirmation of payment. Please retain this for you records. If you have any difficulty with your registration please contact the Referee Department at


Referees can also register by downloading the registration form which is available at the link below. Please return the completed form along with the €25.00 registration fee to Referee Department, Football Association of Ireland, National Sports Campus, Abbotstown, Dublin 15. On receipt of your registration form the Referee Department will send you a confirmation email.


If you have any queries relating to registration, please feel free to contact the Referee Department at
