For everyone to see all referees perform professionally for the good of the game.
We are a global e-commerce destination for soccer referees to improve their expertise through the supply of high-quality merchandise, interactive training modules, and connections throughout the community.
We develop and maintain the highest standard of officiating and promote the game of soccer and the spirit of fair play among all participants.
We practice and represent our values every day in everything that we do.
June 1, 2020: We are in solidarity with the Black community and reject racism, hostility, and intolerance. We recognize the need for open, honest, uncomfortable, and continuous dialogue to get involved in these issues and guide knowledge to action.
We are careful about our choices, don’t take undue risks, and do not say or do things that might later be regretted.
Love of learning
We master new skills, topics, and bodies of knowledge, whether on our own or formally; we have the tendency to add systematically to what we know.
We think things through and examine them from all sides; we do not jump to conclusions, we are able to change our mind in light of the evidence, and we weigh all evidence fairly.
We think of novel and productive ways to conceptualize and do things; including artistic achievement.
We like to laugh and tease, bringing smiles to other people and seeing the light side; we enjoy making (not necessarily telling) jokes.
ProReferee LLC formed in 2009 by Jason Sholl, a former competitive soccer player, and experienced soccer referee. He would sometimes help sell and trade referee uniforms and equipment at training events and symposiums. He would also receive hand-me-downs from FIFA Referees, getting caught wearing tournament gear and uniforms not always available to the public. Drawing on 15 years of officiating experience in youth, adult, college, indoor, and professional soccer, Jason wanted to put the best training and products in the hands of fellow referees.
The ProReferee retail catalog includes everything for the semi-professional soccer referee: cards, whistles, uniforms, flags, bags, electronic communication products, and other accessories.
The store started on a dining room table, expanded to a spare bedroom, and established a brick and mortar retail location in 2014.
