Brief guide to the registration process:
If you are a returning referee from last year you should already have an FFA number and be familiar with this process. If you are a new referee but have played before please use the same FFA number. Otherwise create a new FFA number.
If you have trouble accessing your existing FFA number please use the MyFootball Club help details to retrieve it.
Once you have logged in please confirm your details and proceed to “add registration”
Search for “Eastern Suburbs Football Association Referees (Club)” to register.
If you are a Junior (13-17) OR Senior (18+) referee please select NonPlaying Role (Referee)
With regards to accreditation level, if you are unsure please contact the office for confirmation of your accrediation prior to continuing on with complete registration process. This information is required by FNSW and should not be left blank.
Simply follow the prompts and answer the remaining questions so we can get some info about you! We use your bank details for match payments so please ensure all details are correct. If payments are made to the wrong bank account, it is your responsibility to provide correct information.
