A Local Referee includes:

  • A Capital Football registered Game Leader;
  • A Capital Football registered Referee with a strong focus on youth (13 – 20);
  • A Game Leader registered with a Member Federation or Referee Association.
  • A Referee registered with a Member Federation or Referee Association who has not been selected to participate in the Kanga Cup Referee Youth Academy (KCRYA.)

Referees and Game Leaders can now register for the McDonald’s Kanga Cup as a ‘Local Referee’ by completing the Local Referee Registration Form before 5pm Friday 3rd June.
