Match Officials Training Academy (MOTA)

Would you like to become a qualified match official? 

Always wanted to referee at an open-age level?

Perhaps you're tired of blowing your own trumpet- now it's time to blow your own whistle!

Rugby Festival Events Ltd have invested in establishing a Training Academy to combat the shortage of qualified match officials in rugby league.

Succesful candidates will be fast-tracked onto our MOTA training programme.

#TopGun graduates from 19 Nov 2017 London MOTA course: 


We will:

  • Support and guide you through the RFL match official process
  • Host you on our own training course with an RFL accredited match official
  • Refund 100% of the costs of your accreditation course (conditions apply)
  • Provide you with practical opportunities and clubs to gain experience
  • Open the door to the official RFL Roster for paid officiating 

You will:

  • Have a passion for rugby (League and/or Union)
  • Be at least 16 years old (male or female.... that should be the easy bit)
