US Referee Connection
"Immerse yourself in refereeing"
US Referee Connection was created by a Referee for all fellow Referees, to share our experiences, insights, stories, ask questions and get answers. While at the field, people talk about the two teams playing the game but seem to be unaware of the third team – the Referees, who are in charge of the match.

For over a decade we have worked closely with U.S. Soccer’s top referees to develop the uniforms and equipment used by U.S. Soccer’s game officials from the grassroots levels, to Development Academy events, to U.S. Women’s National Team matches. Can tell a whole different story, because we see the game from a different perspective.
