Refereeing Pyramid 2020-21

The FA has finalised the pyramid for referees for next season

The FA Referees’ Committee have approved the change of name for refereeing levels within the National League System in readiness for 2020/21.

These changes look to reflect terminology consistent with levels used in the National League System to allow greater understanding of the refereeing pyramid across the football community. One element of the current environment largely misunderstood are the names of refereeing levels across the referee pyramid.

Consequently, with immediate effect, the names of levels within the refereeing pyramid will be changed as follows:

Current Name New Name from 20/21 Referee Level Assistant Referee Level
Panel Select Step 1 List 2A 3E
Panel Step 2 List 2B 3F
Contributory Step 3/4 List 3A 4B
Supply Step 5/6 List 4A 5/6/7

Unfortunately, the York Minster Engineering FL did not make the Step 5/6 (Supply) list – place taken by W Yorks League
