    Can’t wait that long? You have two options:

      1. Registered referees can purchase up to 2 replacement badges per year through US Soccer. US Soccer's repleacement badges cost approximately $3.50 each plus shipping. You will need your USSF ID # to log into the online ordering system. For help on placing and tracking your order, call John Hayes at 800-489-2906, ext. 317.

      2. Purchase an expedited badge from the ORC for $10. The badge will be shipped standard mail and should arrive in 3-5 business days. To request an expedited badge, complete the request form here.

Where is my ID card?

    Beginning with the 2017 registration cycle, US Soccer will no longer distribute ID cards. You can print a copy of your ID card for the current year through the US Soccer database.

What equipment do I need to start?

The Oregon Referee Committee suggests that you will need the following bare minimum equipment:

  • Gold (yellow) pin stripe referee shirt with short sleeves
  • Solid black referee shorts
  • Black referee socks with three white stripes at the top
  • Whistle that makes a strong, clear sound
  • Wrist watch with a countdown timer feature
  • Small notebook
  • Pen or pencil
  • Red and yellow cards
  • Coin
  • Two assistant referee flags

Consider adding, over time, additional shirts:

  • Green short sleeve (which gives you an alternate color)
  • Gold long sleeve (which gives you something to wear on cold days)
  • Red or black short sleeve (in case one team is in yellow and the other in green)
  • Green long sleeve
  • Black or red long sleeve
  • Blue short sleeve
  • Blue long sleeve

I noticed that the referee crews on professional are wearing referee jerseys that are different for U.S. Soccer referees. Does this affect me in any way?

No. For professional games in the United States, the leagues may have sponsor commitments that require a different manufacturer to produce the uniforms, but the uniform itself must still comply with the basic standards set by U.S. Soccer. These new styles or designs should have no bearing on the standard uniform otherwise worn by U.S. Soccer referees. For international games, referees from other countries wear FIFA referee uniforms or uniforms approved by their home federation. If U.S. Soccer referees work an international game, they will wear the approved OSI uniform.
