Introducing The Third Team Blog Sponsors | YesRef

Are you tired of continually sharing your bank details every week for payment? Are you constantly contacted about games you’re not interested in refereeing? YesRef have the perfect solution!

YesRef is the easy way to find games. They connect Leagues, Clubs, Businesses and Referees to make finding and paying referees easier than ever. They are changing the game, so you have less admin to worry about and more time for the sport you love.

Finding games has never been easier, simply search YesRef on Apple Store or Google Play Store, create an account and let YesRef handle the rest. You can access the #LiveGamesList where you can see a list of games suited to your preferences and your level! 

Gone are the days of searching Twitter, WhatsApp groups and waiting for phone calls. YesRef increases the visibility of available games all over the country, so wherever you are, you can find a game that is suitable for you.

Going away for university? Visiting family for a weekend but want to referee as well? Just want to referee a little further from home, why not?!

The YesRef platform notifies referees who meet the criteria for the game or event in real-time. With YesRef you can forget about stressing out on match day. You can set your own preferences within your profile so that you only see the games you are interested in. YesRef can guarantee less admin, and more time for a sport you love.

More than that, the platform is completely free of charge for referees and the average referee fee is £42. After paying out more than £70,000 to grassroots referees, there are always more opportunities to develop yourself as a referee and earn a little more money.

One awesome feature is their digital payments, which allows a sports provider to seamlessly pay referees in seconds. Referees have access to their own personal Payment Dashboard where they can track earnings for all games and events, they officiate via YesRef.

YesRef have already confirmed several partnerships with different leagues, club’s businesses, and educational providers for the upcoming season providing you with an ever growing list of opportunities to referee.

We are absolutely delighted to be working with multiple leagues, clubs, education providers and businesses to make it easier to find and pay referees. The way referees are paid is changing and we are pioneering the digital revolution with our easy to use app, paying referees in real-time and reducing the admin for sport providers across all sports.– Olly Rodriguez-Ballinger, YesRef Chief Executive Officer

At The Third Team I work individually and in collaboration with different professionals where I have developed workshops associated with Resilience and Mental Toughness Development to help referees. The workshops are interactive, where referees are encouraged to open up and share their experiences to help each other.

Feel free to contact me if you’d like to know more about my workshops and how I could help you or your officials.

Best Wishes,
