How and when are referees selected for matches?

The appointment of match officials is traditionally announced each Monday. If there is a Premier League fixture on a Monday then the appointments of match officials will be announced on the Tuesday. Select Group referees officiate Premier League matches.

Appointments are made by the Professional Game Match Officials Board. They take into account several factors, including the referee’s overall experience, their current form, how often they have refereed the clubs involved, which team the referee supports and any forthcoming international appointments.
