RRSNY Referee Match Fees
The fee to be paid to the match referee is $100 per match. No additional travel costs are to be added to the fee.
- If a separate referee is assigned to the B match, the fee for the B match referee is $100 regardless of length of match.
- If the referee from the A match agrees to also officiate the B match, the fee for the B match is a full match fee of $100. For cases where the A match referee also officiates the B match AND the B match is half the length or less of a full match, RRSNY guidance is to negotiate a fee for the B match proportional to the length of a full match at that level.
- If the referee from the A match agrees to also officiate a number of 7s matches in addition to the A match, the additional fee for the 7s is $20 per 7s match. Note the first bullet point that if a separate referee was assigned to a B match that was expected to be full length and that match is rearranged on the match day to a 7s match, the fee remains $100. 7s tournament referee fees will be calculated differently by RRSNY depending on tournament details.
Tournaments, typically defined by RRSNY as hosting matches among five or more teams, RRSNY will determine referee fee structures depending on tournament details. Tournaments require additional approvals from RRSNY and the Rugby governing bodies of the host team.
