Make a new interesting experience by refereeing in the dual-system (2 refs on the field). Reykjavik international football and fun festival is a nice tournament where famous teams from Iceland, England and other countries meet. It is located in the heart of Reykjavik. We are guests of a very great host, Trottur Reykjavik, a club that plays in the 2nd highest league of Iceland trying to get promoted back into the top division. We always receive a great service there. There are several offers around the tournament to make it a fun festival too. See official tournament booklet here: https://www.reycup.is/downloads/reycup-brochure-2020.pdf For more information on this tournament read the reports in our tournament archive. The 1st day of the tournament (Wednesday) is reserved for the opening ceremony in the evening. On this day you have time enough to visit Reykjavik. From Thursday to Sunday there will be games, starting at 8 o'clock in the morning ending at about 6 o'clock in the evening. Be prepared to be on the field for 4 hours a day (it may happen that even more is required, so good stamina is needed). All participants show a fair and friendly attitude, so it is really a pleasure to be referee there. On average, the tournament offers a medium quality of games. Requirements for taking part: - experience in refereeing with assistants - English language - good physical condition

Top class tournament for teams from central and eastern Europe but also famous international youth teams. This tournament is really on a top level that gives the best chances for your own refereeing development. Not only by the challenging games, but also with other top referees to learn from. There will be 15 games on 5 days being played at 2-3 fields in Prague. The games are full 90 minutes, a referee in the middle + two assistants + 4th official. The high level of the tournament requires only the best referees. We prefer well experienced referees with good physical condition, as the games can be both physically and mentally demanding. Experience working with assistants and as an assistant referee is essential. This is our best tournament for younger referees on the way to the top. There should be a maximum of 2 games a day for each referee (1 game in the middle and 1 game as a 4th official, or two lines). Referees will have a lot of time to explore the beautiful city of Prague. 2018/2019 winner was Palmeiras from Brazil first league team.

Norway Cup takes place in Oslo (capital of Norway) and is the largest youth tournament in the world. Being at this tournament means you will see more than 2000 different teams and will be able to work with 500 fantastic referees and observers from around the globe. Arrival will be on Friday with one full day off. You will sleep in the school and the tournament provides beds. You should bring your own sleeping bag with you. All the referees will have full board: breakfast, lunch and dinner (+ drinking coupons) in the school. On Saturday there is a Norway Cup opening festival. As well as the almost 40,000 participating players, referees, spectators, and everyone from around Oslo is welcome. The main location is the Ekebergsletta, where you can find more than 40 pitches, the stadium, tournament shops, a free washing service and even a fair with carousel. The actual tournament starts on Sunday. Until Thursday you should expect to referee around 4-6 games a day. You have the possibility of volunteering for extra games at the referee office. Match fees for referees range from 100 NOK (around €8,75) to 60 NOK (around €5,25) per game. Observers will receive 80 NOK (around €7) per game. All referees have to be used to acting as main referee and assistant. Starting from Thursday, the number of games decreases, because the knockout phase will start. On Friday the quarterfinals will be played and on Saturday the finals and the 3rd place matches. You have to check-out from the school on Sunday morning after breakfast. As referee and observer, you will receive a bracelet which gives you free access to public transportation (buses, trams, trains, boats) and free entry to museums and cultural places (including swimming pools) in and around Oslo. We highly recommend this tournament. The slogan: ‘Create your own memories for life’ is really not a lie. Don’t hesitate, just join us at this wonderful tournament!
You have to accept that it can be that you will sleep in a gym hall of a school together with other referees. We don't have enough class rooms for all referees.
