    In our Referee database the NGB can view referee availability, all assignments and personal details for each referee. There is also a quick view menu where the user can view what assignments the referee can be offered.

    All details such as referee grades, referee positions, assessors, coaches, medical doctors etc can be assigned.


    Once the league have selected and finalised their referees for their upcoming games, selecting the ‘notify referees option’ will produce an email to each selected official and will also inform them by text message.

    Each match has a ‘Unique ID’ this allows you to fully track game assignments.

     Each referee will have his own user name and password to gain access to the system.


    Referee/Umpire Role Management: You can specify what abilities each referee role is allowed, and if you want to display the role on the public side of the system.  Manage referee game level restrictions, referee position restrictions and team restrictions.


    Specify Grades: You can create grades for each referee and have your referees sorted by grade and then by name which may make it easier to select qualified referees for certain games

    Field Configuration: The league can pre select which fields they want to be public or hidden. You can assign top level/reduced level of access/visibility to your referees and administrators.

    Automatic Notifications: You can enable (switch on) automatic notifications this will automatically email and SMS a referee if a match schedule was altered.


    Colour coded alerts to notify administrator of potential conflicts in assignments.  Some examples

    Red – Marked as unavailable for selection

    Blue – Referee already selected for a match that day

    Black – Referee is attached to a club for one of the teams playing

    Purple – Referee already selected for a match within 4 days of that date

    Orange – Referee already selected for match within that month


    Hovering over a referee/umpire will give you more detailed information such as the most recent 10 games that he/she has refereed.

    Once the Sports Administrator has nominated their referees – all that is needed is to click ‘update’ at the bottom of the page and these referees will be assigned to these fixtures.

    Each referee is notified of their fixture (game) by SMS and email


    Collecting Results / Pending Results

    Referee/designated Match Official return match result by SMS text message (pre-formatted message).  See our Competition Management software for more. 

    A referee can also enter details for a match directly on to the system. He can enter full details of the score. There is a calculator in this area so if the overall points tally for each team does not compute it will display the text “Mismatch” in red until the proper total of scores are entered.


    Match Reports and Substitutions, Injuries, Discipline reporting

    The referee can also use the box titles to enter a match report, substitutions, injuries and discipline record. If the club has entered his team sheet details prior to the referee uploading his information, the referee will be able to access players and disciplinary information in the discipline record section.

    Once the referee is happy with the information entered he then can click on create report which can be accessed at any time.


    Only publish Referee/Game Official’s assignments when you are ready (finalised).  You control when you want the referee(s) to see the assignment.


    Manage referee and umpire expenses  and payments.
