Futsal Premier League Memberships:

If you are registering for a membership category including Futsal Premier League you must meet the requirements of the 2021 FNSW Futsal Premier League Policy. Please ensure you click the link and read the policy carefully. If you do not meet the requirements of this policy your membership will be transferred to the equivalent Community Futsal category.

Registrations for Futsal Premier League Memberships must be completed by Friday 6 August 2021.


Working With Children Checks:

If you are 18 years or older you must have a current Working With Children Check (WWCC) for paid work. Members are responsible for maintaining (including any costs) of the WWCC. This will be verified during the registration process and no Senior Memberships will be approved without an accompanying valid WWCC. You can apply for, renew or check the status of your WWCC here.


Accreditation Requirements and Updates:

As part of 2021 registrations we are auditing and updating all Members’ accreditations within the Football Australia Qualification Management System (QMS). Members are required to hold either a current Futsal Referee or Referee Assessor accreditation.

Once you have completed your registration you will be contacted with an additional step to complete your membership application:

  • Returning members from 2020/21

You will be revalidated via two steps in the QMS during August and September

  • Last held membership in 2019/20.

If you missed last year you will be required to participate in an update regarding the amendments to the Futsal Laws of the Game before being revalidated via two steps in the QMS during August and September.

  • Last held membership prior to 2019/20

Please contact us to discuss your accreditation after registering.


Change to NSWFRA Membership Period:

We have recently amended our membership period to align closer to the calendar year due to the requirements of Football Australia’s registration system. Please be aware your membership will be for the period of 1 July 2021 to on 28 February 2022 (inclusive). Renewals for the 2022 calendar year are expected to open at the end of this year.

Unsanctioned Futsal Competitions

As a provider of referees to Football NSW we strongly recommend members to do officiate unsanctioned futsal competitions. Members should not accept appointments for unsanctioned matches in place of matches sanctioned by Football NSW or withdraw from accepted appointments to officiate an unsanctioned competition.
