WELCOME

Welcome to the referee section of the Mainland Football web site.

In forming the referee pages of the web site, our aim is to create an easy accessible avenue for people to join the refereeing ranks and also provide information for the general football fraternity and existing referees. 

Mainland Football comprises of referees from the five districts spread widely around the top half of the South Island of New Zealand:

Nelson
Marlborough
Canterbury
West Coast

The largest referee group in MAINLAND is Canterbury, comprising approximately 75% of the membership. 

The game needs more referees and it would be great to eventually provide a referee for every game played in the Federation. 

If you are interested in becoming a referee, whether to referee seniors, women, juniors, become a club based referee or just learn the Laws of the Game, please click here for more info
