CNRA and Official Sports Announce Formal Partnership


October 2, 2023

California North Referee Administration and Official Sports are pleased to announce a formal partnership to support referees throughout Northern California. 

Through this collaboration, Official Sports will provide discounted equipment starter kits to new referees through a specially-designed web portal that will be made available to all new referees when they complete their registration process.  This turn-key solution will make it quick, easy and cost effective for new referees to get the equipment they need to be successful on the field.

Said Ravanfar, State Referee Administrator, said: “Official Sports has been a dedicated supporter of the referee community in the United States for decades, so we are proud to partner with them to provide the best possible equipment and apparel support to referees in Northern California.  Our goal is to reduce the barriers to becoming a referee as much as possible, so we deeply appreciate OSI’s support in minimizing the equipment cost for new referees, and we look forward to working with them in the future to continue to serve the needs of referees in Cal North.”

“We are honored to partner with the California North Referee Association, and to work with Said and his team to bring the best products and services to their membership.  As the Official Technical Partner of U.S. Soccer’s Referee Department, our custom CNRA value starter kits will provide new referees with the Official USSF Uniform that will serve them for years to come”, said Julie Tobin, OSI VP Strategic Partnerships & Marketing.

Official Sports is a family founded, female owned and operated company exclusively serving the soccer referee community for the past 39 years.  They have been the exclusive technical partner/uniform provider to U.S. Soccer and NISOA(College) for decades.  They have an extensive high-quality product line, live customer service, and 24/7 online ordering.
