Introducing Referees

Professional Referees

Japan Football Association (JFA) has implemented “Professional Referee System” in order for the top-level referees to fully concentrate on refereeing. Professional Referees (PR) will strive to improve their level of refereeing at the same time contribute to the refereeing in Japan as a whole by giving lectures and participating in other instructional activities across the nation. Currently, 10 referees and 4 assistant referees have contract as Professional Referees (PR) with the JFA.
