Reach for the Sky

‘Reach for the Sky’ is the theme for this year’s event – what is your limit within your refereeing?  With some of the best tutors on hand to deliver workshops, alongside senior FA refereeing managers plus FIFA and Premier League match officials offering their insight and knowledge, you will hopefully leave with some great ideas and wisdom to take home.
After its debut in 2016, our fun-filled team quiz returns. Teams of up to 6 will compete with a host of interactive rounds on a range of football topics, not just refereeing. Can your team win the title of Quiz Champions? Attendance is free and partners are welcome. This light hearted event aims to bring together all attendees and has no dress code. There will be a prize for best team name.
