Misconduct Moves Online

Whether it's a yellow card, a sending off or a misconduct, all of your reports can now be submitted online via the Whole Game System.

This system allows match officials to submit reports electronically directly to Manchester FA without the need to use email or paper copies.

Referees can now submit the following reports through the Whole Game System:

  • Cautions
  • Sending's Off
  • Misconduct 

Remember! Reports should be completed within two working days of the relevant fixture.

Practical Advice

Writing misconduct reports can be difficult for referees, no matter what their age or experience.

As such The FA has produced a practical guide to misconduct report writing which can be accessed by clicking HERE. 

Personal Hearings

The County FA discipline process may sometimes lead to a personal hearing following a referee's report. Referees and neutral assistant referees are therefore reminded that if you are asked to do so, you must attend personal hearings. 

Officials who fail to attend shall be reported to the County FA. Any referee having accepted a request to attend a personal hearing is then required to close the date with all appropriate competitions to ensure they don't receive a fixture on that same day.
