NON MEMBERS - Eve of Final Rally 2022 - 13th May 2022

Spaces are limited so make sure you book early


The Referees' Association Eve of Final Rally is a celebration of the appointments of the match officials to the FA Cup Final. Having first taken place in 1914, the event allows members of the Referees' Association and guests to meet those taking charge of the pinnacle of the domestic season in England.


Taking place on Friday 13th May 2022, the day before the FA Cup final. The event offers a great opportunity to meet up with fellow colleagues and those who have previously taken charge of the FA Cup Final. Beginning with a development session, lead by the Fourth Official, Reserve Assistant, VAR Referee and the VAR Reserve Assistant Referee, a guest speaker will also address those present before the 2020 FA Cup Final match officials take to the stage. We are also excited to be able to offer a development session by the Women’s FA Cup Final Match Officials ahead of their big day on the Sunday.


The venue for this event is at the very same place the first FA Cup Final took place 150 years ago - The Oval Cricket Ground, Kennington, London, SE11 5SS.

Registration is from 6.00pm and the development session begins at 6.15pm. The main event will begin at 7.15pm.


The event costs £35.00 for non-members of the Referee's Association. The ticket fee includes a raffle ticket for a prize draw on the evening and a programme signed by the 2022 FA Cup Final Match Officials. Those under the age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.


If you have any questions, please contact events@the-ra.org and a member of the team will respond as soon as is possible.
