2022 National Officials Application


The 2022 application for National Referees and National Assistant Referees launched on Wednesday, August 4th in the US Soccer Learning Center. This application is ONLY for Regional Referees interested in upgrading to the National license level who meet the minimum eligibility standards. Any returning National match officials (certified in 2021 and invited back for 2022) should NOT complete this application; they will receive separate instructions. 

For the 2022 registration year, all regional referees who wish to upgrade to the National License level MUST create a profile in the Learning Center and submit the application to become a National Match Official by the deadline September 10th in the Learning Center. Additionally, applicants must CHOOSE which national track they are applying for – Referee or Assistant Referee—they may not apply for both.  
If a match official has questions on how to apply for the 2022 National Licenses, please have them email us directly at WITH THE SUBJECT LINE “NATIONAL APPLICATION”.
