The Referee Annual Allocation Process

The annual referee allocation process is conducted each spring once the international calendars have been finalised and the nominated selection competitions confirmed. BF Pathway Programme referees and active BF FIE referees will be given priority.

All allocations will be completed using the published  Selection Process and Factors.

During this annual allocation process applications for the Referee Pathway Programme will also be considered. This is open to all level 3 referees

A review of the current members activity (both in terms of international and BF run events) and commitment to the programme will take place, new applications will be considered and membership of the programme will be updated accordingly. Please click here for further information on how to apply.

The closing date for submitting applications this year’s international referee allocation process is 4pm Friday 15th June 2018

All successfully allocated referees will be notified and their allocations published on the BF website.
