Who is in charge of Premier League referees?

The organisation that manages the professional officials is PGMO (Professional Game Match Officials Ltd).

PGMO consists of a select group who officiate in all Premier League and some Football League matches as well as a national list who officiate in Football League matches.

PGMO monitors, trains and develops all of its officials and also appoints officials to matches.

The development of referees at grassroots and amateur level falls under the remit of the Football Association.
