Referee Support: Using the Whole Game System
Whole Game is the new On-Line Football Administration System designed by The Football Association to enable Clubs and Referees to administer their day to day activities in a simple and effective way without the need to send or receive letters via the post to and from the County FA.
Referees can now register on-line, they can also submit all misconduct reports via Whole Game, no need for the old template reports that were completed and emailed to the County FA’s. The New system streamlines the discipline process, it knows who the clubs are, in which Leagues and Competitions they play, and if the League is on Full Time, it already knows the players that are registered.
Whenever a Referee cautions or dismisses a player from the Field of Play or is reporting other forms of misconduct, he/she shall prepare a report of the incident or incidents. Within 2 days of the match (Sunday not included), this report must be submitted via the Whole Game System.
Neutral Assistant Referees shall, where the referee has dismissed a player from the Field of Play or is reporting other forms of misconduct, prepare and submit a report in a similar fashion as the match referee. A record should be kept of cautions issued in case the Association requires the Assistant Referee to submit a report.
Referees and Neutral Assistant Referees must attend Personal Hearings when required so to do. If a Referee or Assistant Referee fails to attend he shall be reported to the appropriate authority. Match Official appointments at Contributory League Level or above, already received, take precedence over requests to attend Personal Hearings. However, any Referee having accepted a request to attend a Personal Hearing is then required to close the date with all appropriate Competitions.
Disciplinary enquires must be sent to Janet.Weir@JerseyFA.com
