Dear Colleagues,
We hope you are all well and keeping safe.

We are pleased to announce that Module 2 of the 2020/2021 Referee Education Programme will take place online over the coming weeks. The content focuses on Penalty Area Decisions and is comprised of two parts; an online module and a follow up Zoom meeting.

You will receive an email from the FAI Referee Department one week in advance of your allocated meeting containing the online module and a link to the subsequent Zoom meeting. A specific date and time has been assigned to each league and the list of meetings is available below by clicking on the “CLICK HERE TO ACCESS MEETING SCHEDULE” button. Leagues with a large number of referees  have been split into smaller groupings. 

If you cannot attend your allocated meeting please contact the FAI Referee Department directly at and we will try to assign you to another meeting. Please inform your local observer of the meeting you will be attending once this has been confirmed. 

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at

Stay safe

FAI Referee Department
