FAI Referees Fees & Expenses 2018-2021

New agreement effective Aug 1

A new schedule of fees for match officials came into force with effect from 1 August, 2018 following an agreement between the Irish Soccer Referees Society and the FAI Domestic Committee. This new agreement will run from 01/08/2018 to 31/12/2021

The main elements of interest to clubs competing in the UCFL are as follows:

Premier Division (League & Shield)
Official Fee Travel Expenses Total
Referee €37 €18 €55
Assistant Referee/ 4th official €18 €18.50 €36.50

So for a 3-official team, total cost would be €55 + €36.50x2 = €128

All other divisions:
Official Fee Travel Expenses Total
Referee €30 €18 €48
Assistant Referee/ 4th official €15 €18 €33

So for a 3-official team, total cost would be €48 + €33x2 = €114
