Assistant referee takes notes in his book


Get registered for the new season


Between March and May each year, all referees in Middlesex must register for the following season. 

The easiest way to complete this process is online, via The FA's Whole Game System (WGS) and all referees that registered last season, including all new referees, should have access to the WGS system to do this. 

The Whole Game System provides referees at all levels with a comprehensive online administration package, with some appointing and discipline reporting being directed through the portal. This means referees at grassroots level can now enjoy many of the online processes currently available to colleagues operating at the highest levels of the game.

Frequently asked questions about referee registration

Referees have to register with their Parent County FA each season. Aside from providing you with an affiliation number and ensuring you are covered for public liability insurance, registering also safeguards the game and ensures we can give you the help and support you need (when you need it). 


We would encourage all referees to try to register online. Not only does it allow us to cut down on paperwork but it allows you to manage all your personal details and misconduct reports from one central resource.

If you are unable to access the Whole Game System to register, please get in touch with us in the office so we can provide assistance. 


Yes, you will need your FAN number and Password to access the site. Your FAN was included in the re-registration email sent out to you or can be located in your Member Services account if you can’t find/remember it? If you cant remember or don't have a password, when you log in to register it allows you to create a new password.

If you are aged sixteen or above and officiate in any form of youth football (under 18 or below), you must have an in-date FA CRC to register. Referees who only officiate in adult football are not required to have this certificate. You can contact us for more information on how to obtain or renew your CRC.
