Anyone who wishes to become a Referee or Assistant Referee must register with the Local Football Association which he/she is domiciled at.

This can be any person within the age group of 15 to 30.

FIFA regulates that for submission to become an international referee, the referee shall be at least 25 years old and 23 years in the case of the assistant referee.

In such instances, the CAF Referees programme which is our barometer, dictates that we must be strict with the age limit.

It is the Association, CAF and FIFA’s objective to groom younger individuals as one stands a better chance of being developed further.

Such a candidate must be healthy and physically fit to undergo the rigorous and regular future fitness tests.

In the next phase we shall discuss the different levels that we have.
