Referee Assignors


Assignors service leagues and tournaments at a variety of competitive levels.  National Assignors are selected directly by the U.S. Soccer Referee Department.

Assignors should be selected by the affiliated competitions being served with advisement from the State Referee Committee.

Assignor appointments should be made for a period of at least one year and assignors should be familiar with the registration and certification processes for officials.

When an assignor is also a referee, they should not officiate in any competition where they also serve as an assignor (unless in an emergency situation).

Responsibility of officials:

  • Keep the lines of communication open about upcoming national and international appointments as far in advance as possible
  • Communicate the receipt of a higher priority appointment to their assignor, State Referee Administrator, and U.S. Soccer (if applicable) as soon as possible
  • Report an assignor that refuses to release the official for a higher priority assignment to their State Referee Administrator and the U.S. Soccer Referee Department

Responsibility of assignors:

  • Identify the highly experienced officials on your assignment roster who are likely to be assigned to a higher priority assignment and always be prepared to fill these slots on an emergency basis
  • Cooperate with officials and other assignors on those rare occasions when the game priority policy is invoked
  • Report any concerns regarding officials to the State Referee Administrator
