Referee registration needs to be renewed on an annual basis.
At the end of the season you will receive an email to let you know that your registration for that season has been terminated.
Ahead of the date when referee registration opens, you will receive a further email which will include links to the referee registration products that can be purchased through MyComet.
You will need to click on the link for the Area Association you wish to affiliate to, or the FAW link if you are an elite referee. If you referee across multiple areas, simply select the product relating to the Area you are likely to officiate within the most.
If you register early you may be eligible for an early-bird registration offer so please ensure you click on the correct link according to the date you are registering.
When you click on the link, you will be taken to the COMET log in screen.
Log in with your usual COMET log in details.
When you have logged into COMET, you will be taken directly to the page of the relevant referee registration product.
You will need to tick the three check boxes to agree you wish to affiliate as a referee with the listed organisation, agree to abide by FAW rules and regulations, and confirm you have added your next of kin contact details to your referee profile (this is mandatory from the 2020/21 season in case of emergency - please see the Adding and Updating Personal Information user guide for further information).
When the boxes are ticked, click Add to cart.
When you click Add to cart, if you have not filled in all the mandatory information in your COMET profile, you will receive an error message and be unable to progress with paying for the referee registration.
To return to COMET to fill in the mandatory fields or update your profile, click COMET at the top of the page.
If you are able to proceed, click on the shopping trolley icon at the top right of the page, then, if you are happy that the registration listed is the one you want to purchase, click Cart summary.
You will now see the Checkout Summary page, which gives you a chance to check the registration product and price.
When you have read the terms and conditions (accessed though clicking on the "terms and conditions" text), click the checkbox and the PayPal checkout button.
The next screen will be the PayPal log in screen, where you should log in with your normal PayPal details.
If you do not have a PayPal account, please see the How to open a PayPal account user guide.
When logged into Paypal you will see the payment summary page, as above.
To proceed with the payment click Pay Now.
When your payment has successfully been made, you will be returned to your MyComet account.
Here, you will see the paid item listed under My Items.
You can generate a paid invoice for the referee membership in the Payments section by clicking on the printer icon next to the payment reference.
From here, you can return to your COMET profile by clicking COMET at the top of the page.
If you now return to COMET, you can view your profile by clicking Referees and Officials and then My personal info.
You will see that your registration is now CONFIRMED, which means it is complete and you can be appointed to matches.
For further information on use of COMET, including marking your availability and accepting and declining match appointments, please see the other Match Officials user guides.
