FA to recruit and retain 1,000 diverse referees in next three years

The FA will unveil ambitious new plans to recruit and retain 1,000 new referees from diverse backgrounds in the next three years, Sky Sports News can exclusively reveal, in the hope of drastically changing the culture of grassroots football.

The landmark new FA strategy will be launched tomorrow, with the aim of encouraging more people from under-represented communities to consider getting involved in football, and refereeing. 

Whilst the Professional Game Match Officials Ltd (PGMOL) organises referees and assistants at the elite level, it is nonetheless supportive of this new FA initiative, in the hope that more black and South Asian referees will make it into the professional game in future.
