Contact your referee to confirm the game AND if the game is postponed

It is vitally important that you contact your YEL appointed referee as soon as you receive notification from full-time of a referee appointment. If you don’t, there is every likelihood you will be referred to the YEL Discipline Team for failing to follow league rules and end up not being appointed referees in the future.

Also, if your game is postponed or cancelled, you must contact your referee to advise them. No point in just notifying the opposition and forgetting the referee. If you have confirmed the game and forgotten to notify them of a postponement and they turn up, they will be entitled to their full fee from you.

Please Note: We have had referees starting to decline appointments where teams have failed to contact them in the past. With the shortage of referees, there are plenty of other games for them to officiate if you have failed to contact them. It is a league rule that you confirm the game with them.

Game Day Hotline
If you have any match day queries when at your game – Saturday or Sunday – and need advice, contact the YEL Game Day Hotline. It is monitored by YEL staff and is available between 9.30am and 12.30pm for match day queries only.
