Opportunities to Referee within Disability Football

There are plenty of opportunities to referee across the disability pathway. For many, the journey begins at their local County FA’s PAN Disability League. 

One person who made the move to refereeing disability football is Surekha Griffiths. Surekha was awarded the 2023 Grassroots Match Official of the Year. Watch the video below to see Surekha in action.

There are further opportunities to progress through regional impairment specific leagues, up to the England national PARA squads where there is the opportunity to referee international fixtures. For more information, contact our Referee Development Officer.
