Durham FA - Purple Card

By Maurice Galley

New Card for Referees

"Today Durham County FA are launching The Purple Card for Referees. This card will allow clubs to access the referee’s emergency details should the worst happen.

As clubs will have emergency contact details for players on a matchday it has become apparent that very rarely will clubs or first aiders have access to a referee’s emergency details as usually the pre-game confirmation is made with the referee via their email or mobile number which is of no use if they become incapacitated.

We are encouraging all referees to print off this card and place it in their match wallet and notify clubs before the game that their emergency details are there should they me needed on a match day."
