Supporting You at Home or Away

remarkably simple process

transitional support

Every season thousands of referees up and down the country leave home and start their time at university and this is often in an unfamiliar area and county. We'd like to make this life-changing transition as easy as possible by supporting your refereeing.

Moving to essex

Referees moving to study in Essex have a wealth of opportunities available both within the grassroots game and the university itself.

Once you’ve confirmed your move, we will be able to affiliate you with Essex County FA free of charge and can look to signpost you to the local grassroots leagues to receive games. The process is as easy as one email or phone call.

Below are the universities that are within Essex:

  • Anglia Ruskin University (Chelmsford)
  • University of East London
  • University of Essex
  • Writtle University College 

To discuss the options available or arrange affiliation please email Referees@EssexFA.com.

Leaving Essex

Referees that plan to leave Essex to study in other parts of the country will also need to go through the simple process of affiliating with their new County FA. Once this has been completed, it will just be the case of carrying on with refereeing as normal.

Please email Referees@EssexFA.com if you’re looking to study outside of Essex in which we can signpost you to the Referee Development Officer of the County FA in which you’ll be studying within.
