Referees are an integral part of the football family and their performance is crucial to the the development of the game in New Zealand and within the Auckland Football Federation.
Referee education has been a key priority for the Auckland Football Federation and our referees have been given invaluable advice in technical and instructional sessions and tests, all designed to help the match officials achieve the standards required at whatever level they officiate.
Among that advice is significant tests and courses that referees undertake at AFF courses about the Laws of the Game.

Kanga Cup 2017
Auckland Football Federation match officials made a big impact at the Kanga Cup in Canberra, Australia.
Match officials at the Kanga Cup get the experience of being able to live the life of a professional official for a week and are involved in three to four matches per day as both a referee and assistant referee.
The reward for top performances in the group stages is potential control of finals matches and 2017 was no different.
“The AFF contingent did extremely well with all four being appointed to the Grand Finals.
“Riley Greenbury was given the main boys U-18 final as a referee,” Smith said.
