Payment process

Referee Payment Procedure

The purpose of the EODSA Centralized Referee Payment procedure is to optimize the referee payment procedure for all leagues where the game officials are appointed by the EODSA. This will offer a better service to Referees and remove a substantial operating cost from those Leagues who decide to participate.

The following Leagues will be given the opportunity to participate in the program for games played in the EODSA, SNE and ARSO Districts:


Game Fees
The EODSA will set game fees for the following Leagues:


Following each game the Referee must perform the following duties so that he/she may be paid:

a) The Referee must submit an on line game report on the assignment system.

b) The Referee must submit completed game sheets to the League office within 48hrs.

Until the Referee completes both of these he/she will not be paid for the game.

The League office host must acknowledge on the assignment system that the game sheets have been received at the League office. Only when this occurs will the game be approved for payment by the EODSA.

Referees will be able to view a report on the assignment system indicating when each game fee will be paid.

If the EODSA is unable to assign a referee or AR to a game, the home club will not be charged for that position in the clubs final invoice. In these circumstances, if the home club subsequently arranges for alternate referees or ARs to fulfill the role, then the home club is responsible for compensating these alternate officials at the regular game fee rate.

Postponed and cancelled games
Referees will be paid according to the EODSA Cancelled/Postponed and Abandon games policy.
