Welcome to the referee section of the Mainland Football web site.
Mainland Football comprises of referees from the five districts spread widely around the top half of the South Island of New Zealand:
The largest referee group in MAINLAND is Canterbury, comprising approximately 70% of the membership. Nelson has about 13%, Blenheim and Mid-Canterbury 7% and the West Coast 3%.
The game needs more referees and it would be great to eventually provide a referee for every game played in the Federation.
