The Isthmian league goes for YesRef

Bringing together sports and technology, YesRef will ensure easy, real time payments for referees on the Isthmian Development League.

As part of the new partnership, YesRef will provide real time payments for all referees across the Bluefin Development League. Utilising our simple to use platform for paying referees in real time, YesRef will reduce the admin associated to this time consuming and manual process, giving users back time for the sport they love!

The YesRef system generates invoices and receipts, captures expenses for referees when required and prevents clubs from adding multiple users to their own payee list. YesRef is the single payee and our software will handle the rest.

Ben Williamson, Chief Operating Officer, YesRef said “It is brilliant to be supporting yet another league to facilitate secure digital payments to referees. Being able to support the Bluefin Development League to overcome all of their frustrations is exactly what YesRef is all about”

Nick Robinson, League Chair, commented "This Is part of our commitment to use new technology to help our referees and particularly our volunteers. The Yes Ref system Is easy to use and we hope to expand the use In future seasons."
