How do people find referees


Why are we looking for you
Every week in Tyrol, around 250-300 football matches are occupied by our referees. They all ensure that around 24,000 active soccer players can pursue their hobby.

No matter whether you are an active footballer, have already hung up your shoes or have only been interested in football from the stands. We are looking for courageous people who dare to get to know football from a different - interesting - perspective.

Are you at least 14 years old and familiar with spoken and written German? Are you a courageous personality and would like to develop yourself physically and mentally? Then we are looking for YOU!

What do we offer you?
We offer you camaraderie, personality development, sporting activity, constant further education, free entry to all football games in the TFV area, financial allowance. We also offer promotion opportunities up to the Bundesliga.

Careers begin with us!
Our Bundesliga referees Walter Altmann, Andreas Heiss and Daniel Pfister began their careers in the Tyrolean regional association, as did our former FIFA referees Thomas Einwaller and Konrad Plautz. Our colleagues Stefan Gamper, Andreas Staudinger and Philip Gschliesser are currently involved as assistants in the Bundesliga, and they passed the exam in our small but successful team some time ago.
