The Cambridgeshire FA referee registration window opens on Tuesday 1st June 2023. Whilst the registration window is open throughout the full season, please note that as of 1st July 2023 we move into the 2023/24 footballing season and if you have not registered for season 202/23 prior to 1st July then you will not be permitted to officiate any matches, including pre-season friendlies and tournaments, until you have done so.

In order to register you simply need to log into the Whole Game System and complete the registration process. Please ensure that all personal details are up to date when completing the re-registration process.

How to Register
