MWSL League Manager
Attention Coaches and Managers:
This year as we like many other leagues have found that
finding referees last year and this year to be a challenge. The MWSL has tried
for several years to keep the referee fees low. We are competing with other
adult leagues for the same referees, and we have had to make the difficult
decision to raise our fees to be in line with other leagues to attract the same
caliber of referees we have had in the past.
We are aware that this is very late notice to our teams
and apologize for this but with the referee shortage we are unable to retain
referees when other leagues are offering $90 a game compared to our $80 a game
for a center referee.
Per team fee
Referee 2 Assitants
$90 - 55 - 55
Referee 2 Assitants
$80 - 50 - 50
Referee 2 Assitants
$80 - 50 - 50
Referee fees for Premier will be $45 for the center ref and $55
for the Assistant Referee per team per game so total $100 per team per game.
Referee fees for Selects A&B will be $40 for the
center ref and $50 for the Assistant Referee per team per game so total $90 per
team per game.
Please be aware that due to the shortage you may not have linesman for every game. We
will do our best, but they may not be available.
Referee fees in Divisions 1-4, Masters and Over 40’s will
stay at $40
for the center ref. These were raised last season
The MWSL is always looking for referees, please share
our contact information with your friends and family if you know of anyone who
may not play soccer anymore but still wants to be involved in the game. The
MWSL can provide assistance on how to go about becoming a referee.
Thank you for your understanding and again apologies for
the late timing with this increase.
