About us

Welcome to the Grassroots Referees website

Grassroots Referees is dedicated to providing kit, equipment, information, and advice to the refereeing community.

Grassroots Referees has quickly developed relationships with over 40 County FAs, National Associations and referee organisations, providing kit and equipment for new referee candidates at very affordable prices. The bespoke starter, kit and equipment packs have proved very popular, and the brand is now widely seen at all levels.

Grassroots Referees provides for all levels of referee; from those just taking the course through to the more experienced referee. The significant product range will cover just about everything a match official might need from kit, equipment and training wear through to medical products and even a specific coach/assessor notepad!

The brand is owned by Steve Chittenden who has over 35 years’ experience as a referee, from being a member of the Professional Game Match Officials to local football, where he is still actively refereeing.

Grassroots Referees is your highest quality one-stop shop for all your refereeing requirements at highly competitive prices.
