The distance travelled varies on the type of match being officiated. On average though, a referee can expect to cover up to 8 miles (at senior professional level). Much of this will be jogged or walked at a brisk pace, but as many as 2000 yards may be covered by sprinting.

How many officials control a game of soccer?

There are usually four officials controlling a soccer match: one Referee, two Assistant Referees, and a Fourth Official. In non-professional games, the Fourth Official is usually not present. In some youth games (U10 and below in the US), the offside law is not applied, and so the Assistant Referees are also not used. To confound things more, there is a FIFA sanctioned experiment in the use of two Additional Assistant Referees stationed near the goals (one on each side). There may also be Reserve Assistant Referees who take no part in the match unless an Assistant Referee is unable to continue.

Do referees provide medical treatment in soccer?

There are usually medical people at a match, so the referee does not need to. It is not their role. They could of course help if they had medical experience, but as there are qualified people to do the job there, it rarely if ever happens.
