About us

Referee 

Referee Abroad is a non-profit organisation

Unite referees with international tournaments with the objective of expanding their refereeing experience

Referees in their own right are unique and extraordinary, usually inspired by an internal and natural desire to follow such a passion. Pursuing refereeing abroad with colleagues from across the globe is, in our opinion, the zenith of such a passion.

Referees should embrace a “Referee Abroad Experience” as they offer the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in multiple cultures and collaborate with fellow referees from diverse nations. 

This exposure not only enriches their officiating skills but also fosters cross-cultural understanding, strengthening their global network. Moreover, it contributes to personal growth, enhancing adaptability and broadening horizons, all while advancing their professional careers in the world of soccer officiating.
