Referee Uniform Guidelines
CHICAGO (July 2016) The US Soccer and Official Sports International unveiled new Referee uniforms that feature a redesigned shirt in the following colors: Yellow, Blue, Red, Black, and Green.
The new uniforms will be available for purchase at officialsports.com - Official Sports International has served as the exclusive supplier of USSF Referee apparel and accessories since 1998.
The State Referee Committee expects every effort will be made for the Referee crews to wear the same color and style of uniform; including socks. The remainder of the Referee uniform will be black shorts, black shoes and black USSF two-stripe socks with US Soccer Referee embroidered on the top of the foot.
Yellow is the primary color and Black, Red, Blue or Green can be used to avoid conflicts with either teams' jersey color so long as the Referee crew is wearing the same color.
You may still wear the current "Thick Stripe" style jerseys through the end of 2018. It is OK for crew members to have different style jerseys during this transition period as necessary. All members of a Referee crew must wear the same color and are encouraged to make every effort to wear the same style.
