Eve of Final Rally 2017


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 26th May 2017, the day before the FA Cup final, the event also 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 and the Reserve Assistant Referee, a guest speaker will also address those present before the 2017 FA Cup Final match officials take to the stage.

The venue for the event is One Great George Street, Westminster, London, SW1P 3AA. Registration is from 6.00pm and the development session begins at 6.15pm. The main event will begin at 7.15pm.

The event costs £5.00 for members of the Referee's Association and £20.00 for non-members. The £5.00 ticket fee includes a set of raffle tickets for a prize draw on the evening and a programme signed by the 2017 FA Cup Final Match Officials. Guests can be added on at the end of the booking form once it has been completed for the first person. 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.
