Match Official Fees and Payment

Match Official Fees and Payment

1. Match Officials (referees and their line assistants) must be paid prior to each game by both teams. Payment must be made in cash.  The game will not commence until all payments are made and match sheets completed. 

The CDSFA Schedule of Referee and Assistant fees can be downloaded here and has different fees by age group.

2. The Match Official Payment Record Sheet is the formal record of payment made by the team and has space for up to 8 match payments.  The sheet must be completed and signed by the match officials at each match played.

3. The team manager is responsible for ensuring team payments are made and that the payment record sheet is signed.  The team manager must ensure that any match officials (Referees and Assistant Referees) complete their respective sections and sign them.

4. We recommend that team managers take a photo of the Payment Record Sheet regularly as a backup reference

5. Once a form is complete with all 8 matches, please email a copy of the form to

Match Day Referee Fees Reimbursement

1. Payments will be processed in batches and will typically take a week or two for reimbursement.

2. All payments will be EFT to the nominated bank account. Team managers must ensure their details are completed on each form submitted.

3. The Club will not split the referee fee reimbursement amongst 2 or 3 bank accounts. Teams (team managers) should arrange a single person/bank account to receive the reimbursement and where required, distribute payment to others that have contributed for match official fees.

4. The Club appreciates that teams (team managers) are out of pocket for the official payments and will try to be as efficient as possible in reimbursing match official fees. Please understand that the Club committee are all volunteers and perform these tasks in their free time. If a match official fee reimbursement is urgent for any reason, then please email and the Club will do its best to expedite payment.
