Ever wondered how much football referees earn for all the troubles??

Officials at the top end of the game receive a lot of
negative attention from managers and media, but how
much do they earn for their troubles?

How much do referees earn in the UK?

Depending on the level, referees can earn a little or a lot for
officiating a match. Amateur referees in the UK work on a game-
by-game basis and their match fee is dependant on the local
football associations. Pay is usually between £20 and £40 per
game.

Referees at the semi-professional level - the lower leagues of the
English football pyramid - get both their match fee as well as
expenses. They are paid around £80 per game as well as whatever
mileage they have to travel to and from the match venue.

At the top end, Premier League referees are salaried so they get
paid a regular wage with match fees on top of that. Referees in the
top-flight of England can earn as much as £70,000 per year. They
are paid a basic yearly retainer of between £38,500 and £42,000
based on experience, and then are paid £1,150 per match on top
of that.

Championship referees receive the same basic yearly retainer but
are only paid £600 per game.

How much do referees earn in the rest of the world?

Unlike in England where referees are paid a basic yearly retainer
and then paid per-match on top of that, the officials in the rest of
Europe's top leagues are just paid on a game-by-game basis.
La Liga games provide the higest match rate, with referees paid
€6,000 a game - which works out at around £5,200. France and
Germany's top-flight referees get paid just over half that amount.

Country Match Fee
England £1,150 + retainer
Spain £5,200
Germany £3,150
Italy £3,000
France £2,400
Portugal £1,000

Champions League referees are divided into tiers depending on
their experience, and thus the more senior officials are paid over
£5,500 per game if they are in the Elite tier. Elite Development
referees get £3,800, while the bottom tier ones get £700 per game.
