Referee Uniform The United States Soccer Federation has a partnership with Offficial Sports International (OSI). OSI is the official jersey for the United States Soccer Federation. OSI is the only vendor that may be invited to sell referee gear at New Referee Clinics. The USSF Entry Level Clinic welcomes OSI to sell referee gear. Unfortunately, we do not have a local distributor in our area. To purchase OSI gear go to: http://www.officialsports.com/ (the brand experienced referees purchase). We have found that there are other referee gear distributors available. Check out these other sites.
Please be aware that the style of stripes on the referee jersey changed a few years ago. The newest "look" can be found at Official Sports International. Be sure what you are purchasing looks the same. Referees will need: jersey, solid black shorts that are mid-thigh (not basketball shorts that fall to the knees), black socks with two stripes, data wallet, whistle, watch with stopwatch, black shoes (cleats, turfs or even comfortable running shoes) and flags. There is a representative from The Whistleline, Dan Rice, who sells referee gear in Spokane. His contact information can be found at http://www.thewhistleline.com/areaagents.htm
