Referee Reminders for Spring Season

  • Changes in the Laws of the Game

    IFAB has made changes to the FIFA Laws of the game for 2018 – 2019. It is important to review and understand those changes as they are to be effective immediately. Click here to review the changes.

  • Refpay

    As a reminder our pay periods are from the 11th - 25th of one month and the 26th to the 10th of the next month. Any games that have a match review completed during that pay period window will be paid for that pay period (unless of course the arbiter username and account number are not listed correctly in Affinity). For the 11th - 25th pay period payment will be made on the 30th and for the 26th - 10th pay period payment will be made on the 15th. Match Reviews must be completed for a referee to be paid. If the 15th and 30th fall on the weekend payment will be made on the Friday before the weekend.

    Please make sure that your Arbiter Account Number and Arbiter Username or correctly listed in your Affinity Referee Account. If you're unsure what your Arbiter Account Number and Username are please contact Arbiter at 801-576-1251.

    If you've been getting paid regularly through Refpay with no problems in past seasons then your account information is correct.

    Digital Player Cards

    Digital Player cards have been approved for state competition league play. This means that teams are allowed to pull up their player passes on their smart phone or tablet at the fields. Many of you are familiar with the technology if you've refereed in State Cup, Presidents Cup, Coyote Cup, or had teams that used the platform last fall season.

    Teams can either use a traditional Game Day Roster for check in at a game or they can use Digital Player Cards. We will accept either for check-in. The teams are responsible for providing their own device if they want to use the digital player cards for league play. However, if you're familiar with the platform and are willing to use your smart phone or tablet you can log in to the platform as a referee and pull up the player cards for the game on your phone. Red Cards, Concussion Restrictions, or Suspensions are shown on the digital cards. Jersey Numbers, if not already entered, can be entered.

    If the teams are using their phones you just need to double check that the correct game # is pulled up and then check the pictures on the phone against the players who are checking in.

    If using your own device you can also log the score, cards, or any other notes about the game as soon as the game concludes. You do not have to enter scores through the digital cards platform. You can log in to affinity through your computer and score the games and complete the match review as you have the past several seasons.
