FIE Referees refereeing at events for which an FIE qualification is a requirement are entitled to invoice BF for the day rate of £80 for each day of competition that their refereeing services are required. For more details click here.


Update for 2020-21 Season

BF does not pay subsistence allowances/scale rates (previously ‘per diems’). All subsistence claims (including those for GBR Volunteer Officials at EFC and JWC events) must have associated receipts for all expenditure.

Maximum claims:

  • £35.00 in any 24-hour period
  • Where officials are required to depart after 13.00 on the day of departure or return home £20.00 will apply.

BF will increase the maximum claims where appropriate when travelling to countries where the £35 limit would be unreasonable (eg Luxembourg, Switzerland).
