Soccer Referee Gear in Northern IL
Not everyone comes to Official Finders with vast experience as a soccer player. Some are simply fans of the game or want a new challenge. No matter what brings you here, by the time you complete our soccer referee training you’ll have the knowledge to officiate games fairly, and a new appreciation for one of the world’s most popular sports. But of course, as an employee, we want you to be equipped for the job, so we offer referee gear to get you off on the right foot.
Why You Need Gear to Referee a Soccer Game
Why is the right gear just as important as the right training?
When you’re refereeing, there’s no such thing as “fake it ’til you make it.” You need to know what you’re doing, and you also need to look at the part so you stand out among the other players. We offer officials uniforms so represent yourself as a professional while refereeing in Northern IL.
Unlike baseball, where umpires (and everyone else) are stationary for long stretches of the game, soccer is in constant motion. You’ll want clothing that fits right, doesn’t impede movement, and helps control the sweat that’s inevitable on game days. That way, you can focus on the game instead of being distracted by discomfort.
Available Soccer Referee Gear
Whatever you need on the field, we have it—and we keep it affordable.
Game day can be long and hot, but it doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. We offer soccer refereeing apparel in both youth and adult sizes.
Referee shirts: These stylish polos come in eye-catching colors, made of moisture-wicking performance fabric with a velcro logo patch, plus pockets for your card set.
Referee shorts: A comfortable fit and fabric that stretches as you move to help these shorts keep you cool and dry no matter how much you move.
Referee socks: Solid black with white stripes, these socks round out your outfit but also help to wick moisture so you don’t feel like you’re running through puddles.
Soccer Referee Accessories
Soccer may not be as heavily accessorized as some other sports, but there are still a few other essentials worth having. These include a whistle so you can get players’ attention on important calls, and a referee card set so you can issue and track yellow cards and red cards.
Referee Equipment Bundles
Looking to get the essentials, and save? Consider a kit that combines most of the essentials in a single package. Our Soccer Official Starter Kit bundles a soccer referee shirt, shorts, socks, a lanyard with a whistle, a game coin, and a write-on card set so you get everything you need all at once.
