Learning Objectives

After completing this help guide, you’ll be able to:

  • Send a notification to a new appointment without changing the status of the match.


Usually the notification of refereeing appointments is sent when referees are appointed to roles in a match and the match status is changed from ENTERED to SCHEDULED. But if one of those referees has had to reject the appointment and you need to send a notification without changing the status of the match then this can be done. 


  • Once logged in, select Competitions from the left hand menu.
  • Select My Competitions.
  • Select the relevant competition.
  • Select the relevant match to navigate to its dashboard.
  • Select Edit.




  • In the Match Officials section, input the name of the referee next to the corresponding match role that you need to update.


  • Once you have entered all the officials, select Send notifications.



  • Once that is done all referees in the match that are still at PENDING status will receive a notification of their appointment. Any referee which has already received their original appointment and confirmed this will not receive a new notification.
