An Evening with Craig Pawson

London FA, Middlesex FA and Amateur Football Alliance invite you to an evening with a Premier League match official.

London FA registered referees are invited to a special event featuring Premier League match official, Craig Pawson.

An Evening with Craig Pawson will take place on Wednesday 9 November 2022 at Covent Garden Dragon Hall, commencing at 7.30pm and finishing at 9.30pm.

During the evening, referees from across London will have the opportunity to hear from Craig about his journey and the life of a referee at the highest level. A vastly experienced SG1 referee, Sheffield-born Craig is one of the Premier League’s top officials, and last season officiated both the FA Cup final and Community Shield. 

Craig is also a member of the FIFA List of Officials.

Tickets for this event cost £5, which also includes raffle tickets to win some terrific referee-related prizes.

Places are limited and sure to go quickly, so book early to avoid disappointment.


This latest event highlights London FA’s commitment to developing our referees through top-quality referees and educators to enhance the standard of refereeing in London.

Deryll David, London FA Referee Development Officer, said: “We’re delighted that Craig is able to join us and give our London FA officials the opportunity to hear some top-level information. I’m glad we could organise this, it should be an inspiring evening for our up-and-coming referees as well as a good opportunity to network with officials at London FA, Middlesex FA and the Amateur FA. 

“I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.”
