Policy - Reffing Exhibition and Non Sanctioned Matches

The Elgin Middlesex Soccer Association will be contacting all Clubs and advising them of the requirements to secure the services of a registered Match 

Official for all exhibition games.

Both teams and players must be properly registered and the District must be notified of the game as to who is playing along with the when and where.

If you are being contacted by whomever to officiate any Exhibition Game please take the following procedure:

  • Ask the person if both teams are registered for the 2018 season
  • You will need to contact myself with this information prior to officiating the game - matt.emsadrc@gmail.com
  • Once you receive confirmation from myself, your are safe to go
  • The teams are to complete an Exhibition Game sheet and the Match Officials are to sign the sheet.
  • It is the responsibility of the "Home Team" to submit the game sheet to the EMSA office.  These are posted on the EMSA website

It is imperative that you do not officiate non-sanctioned games (teams not registered with EMSA)

Match Officials, Players etc. are all covered by Ontario Soccer insurance policy once registered.  If you are someone else involved in a non-sanctioned

game gets seriously hurt, there will be no insurance coverage.  There could be an investigation which could lead to some sort of discipline.

Follow the rules, it is for you own protection.

Yours in soccer, 

EMSA DRC Matt McCready
