Fines / Charges

  • Any changes (e.g. location/venue, kick-off time, etc.) within 7 days of the scheduled game could result in the loss of assigned match official(s).
  • In case of an “act of God”, the team/club must make every effort to contact the match official(s) to avoid costs being incurred. If the team/club fails to contact the assigned match official(s), the team/club will be billed the normal match fee plus a $50 penalty.
  • Requests for match official(s) made within 10 days of the scheduled game may be billed at double the normal match fee (as listed above), if a match official(s) is assigned.
  • Clubs are required to confirm match details with their assigned officials at least 72 hours prior to the scheduled kickoff time, as per the official schedule on PotomacReferees.org. If a club fails to confirm match details by this time, the match official(s) may be reassigned and the club may still be billed the match fee(s).
  • If a club cancels a match with less than 72 hours’ notice, the club may still be billed for the match.
  • Should an official become unavailable after contact and without replacement, Potomac will credit the club for 1/2 the match fee (in addition to no charge for the assignment).
  • Should a referee fail to show without notice for a match after contact, Potomac will credit the club for a full match fee (in addition to no charge for the assignment).
