We use RefUp as our allocations system.

Log in or sign up to request a ref:



RefUp is rather intuitive to use, but there are a few things you need to know before getting started:


You pay as you go

In order to get a referee, you need to provide a payment method. If you don’t provide a payment method, your game will be saved, but no referee will be assigned. Game fee is charged after each game and an invoice is sent via email.

Assignment timeline:

Referees are assigned 3 days after the game is entered into the system, or 10 days before the match, whichever comes last (i.e. if you enter a game 8 days before kickoff, your referee will be assigned 5 days before kickoff).

Make contact:

When you are assigned a referee, make contact with her or him and exchange cellphones in case something changes before kickoff. Your assigned referee can be seen here.

Cancellation or change:

To cancel a game or change a time/venue, login to RefUp and make the changes.

  • Any changes (e.g. location/venue, kick-off time, etc.) within 7 days of the scheduled game could result in the loss of assigned match official(s).

  • To contact, click on the ref's name here.

  • If a club cancels a match with less than 24 hours’ notice, the club may still be billed for the match.

  • Canceling a match within Refup is the match organizer's responsibility

  • Should an official become unavailable after contact and without replacement, Potomac will credit the club for 1/2 the match fee (in addition to no charge for the assignment).

  • Should a referee fail to show without notice for a match after contact, Potomac will credit the club for a full match fee (in addition to no charge for the assignment).
