Central Wales Football Association





Renewing your Referee Registration

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.

Adding the referee registration to your MyComet cart

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.

Viewing the registration in your MyComet 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.

Checkout 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 new Online Referees Course by the FAW, is currently priced at £80. It is the opinion of many, I’m led to believe, that it’s too expensive. 

The previous courses, which were held in a classroom, was £15. So why the increase? 

The new course, when you qualify and pass the exam, you will receive a kit, with logo of your Area Association, plus all basic equipment to start your refereeing venture. Follow the link for more information.


Is it worth it? 

Yes. Quite simply, yes. 

Previously, you would pay £15 for the course, but then the kit would cost in excess of £100. Depending on your choice of kit, might be more.

And getting the kits from one supplier means every referee starts out looking identical. Same uniform if you like. 

So, think again. Be brave, make that decision. Become a ref.
