YesRef is supporting grassroots football in Wiltshire by sponsoring Wiltshire County FA Sunday Cup.
Oliver Selfe, CEO at Wiltshire FA said, “We are delighted to welcome YesRef onboard as one of our cup sponsors, their contribution will help us to support the grassroots game in Wiltshire.
“We are really looking forward to Season 21/22, and hopefully a full Cup competition, as we make a comeback after two difficult and disrupted seasons due to Covid.”
YesRef is a Wiltshire based company that bring sport and technology together offering support to referees. The platform allows greater accessibility and visibility to games, along with opportunities to officiate while increasing the coverage of qualified referees on games across the county of Wiltshire.
Oliver continues, “We are always looking for ways to innovate and support our members across the county. YesRef is a product that can benefit our referees and can also offer another option when it comes to appointing officials for matches.
"We recognise the hard work of appointment officers and we see YesRef as a product that can support the traditional methods of sourcing referees if required.”
The YesRef platform offers an easy option for over 1000 teams to find and pay referees in one simple easy to use platform. The system also helps crucial sports volunteers by reducing their admin time when it comes to finding and paying referees. The platform offers referees the ability to find games quickly and easily allowing them gain experience. By sharing available opportunities with more referees, YesRef will help to increase the coverage of qualified referees, further supporting growth of the game in the local community.
Ben Williamson, Chief Operations Officer, YesRef said, “We are delighted to be working with the Wiltshire FA to offer YesRef to member clubs and referees alike. Having refereed for over 15 years, many of which at grassroots level, I know how difficult it is to find games, so having a single location to find games in the county will be a huge benefit to clubs and referees. Our platform also reduces admin, giving back valuable time back for the sport we all love”.
Sponsorship investment supports Wiltshire FA’s mission to make the grassroots game more sustainable and is also a key driver of YesRef, to give back to the grassroots community and make sport accessible for all.
