Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) and Community Football Partner, Newcastle Permanent Building Society (NPBS), have extended the annual Referee Recognition Weekend to a week this year to celebrate the region’s Referees!
The recognition of referees is integral to the Newcastle Permanent Community Football partnership with the Community Referee of the Month Award celebrated monthly throughout the 2017 Season.
Newcastle Permanent Referee Recognition Week now gives the football community the chance to show our appreciation to our referees and match officials and show they are valued members of the football family who are respected by players, coaches and supporters alike.
Referee Recognition Week will commence from today, Monday 24th July to Sunday 30th July 2017. Throughout the week, NNSWF and NPBS will share stories of Referees in the region and share their journeys and experiences throughout their time refereeing.
On match days, clubs are encouraged to thank each of the referees and show their appreciation of their hard work that makes our game so enjoyable and safe.
