Hello, my name is Matt Barquin and I am the Director of Referees and assign all soccer games for the Flagstaff Soccer Club!


If you are a certified referee and interested in being a referee for the 2021 Northern Arizona Invitational you are in the right place! We have two upcoming tournaments in beautiful and sunny Flagstaff and are looking for motivated referees!

*any other pertinent information that would be helpful just email me!




We offer free hotel rooms to out of town referees. All rooms are double occupancy and include free breakfast. If you need a hotel, please email me with how many nights (Friday and Saturday, or just Saturday) and if you have a roommate preference.




All referees who confirm refereeing at least 3 games will receive free lunch. Lunch is delivered to all of the fields. Water, electrolyte drinks and snacks are also provided at each field.
