Referee blowing a whistle


The WGS provides referees at all levels with a comprehensive online administration profile.

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.

Following the success of online referee registration of the last three years, referees will once again be able to register electronically for the 2019-20 season through the Whole Game System.


From the 1st May you can access the registration portal using the following link: Whole Game System

In order to access online referee registration via the WGS, referees require their FAN number and password. 

Please ensure the details you enter when registering are accurate and correct i.e. email address, contact details, address etc. 


Passwords can be reset using the following link: Password Reset

Please note that County FA staff do not have access to your password details so they are unable to give you this information.


Further information is available online to assist with the new online registration process and can be found by visiting:

There is also a video link explaining the process, along with guidance documents to support you with this process.


It is mandatory that every match official registers as a referee every season with their parent County FA.  The cost of referee registration is £20.00 for the season 2019-20.  Please ensure you complete your registration by 30th June 2019.  From 1st July 2019, this price will rise to £25.00.

Should you require any further information regarding online registration process, referees can email or call the out of hours helpline on 07940 305971.
