Many fans would say any amount an NFL referee makes is too much, especially after calls go against their team. The refs would argue that they don't make nearly enough for such a thankless job. On any given Sunday, either side could be right. You may remember the bitter pay dispute between the NFL and the referee's union back in 2001 when the zebras went on strike. The NFL hired 112 temporary officials, some of whom had worked the most competitive American College Football conferences. They were paid $8,000 for a guaranteed four weeks. Up to that time, the then-striking officials were earning from $24,825 to $69,990 per season, depending on experience. What do they earn now? A knowledgeable (and hopefully trustworthy) acquaintance states that NFL referees currently earn between $42,295 and $120,998 per season. That might not sound like much, but remember, the NFL season is only 16 games. How do those figures compare with the salaries of refs in other sports? According to AskMen.com, Major League Baseball umpires earn anywhere from $100,000 to $280,000 per season, plus they get a generous expense account. NHL officials make even more -- from $115,000 to $220,000 per season, based on experience. Probably because they have to know how to skate backwards and stay out of the way of swinging hockey sticks.
he new eight-year contract -- the longest ever for officials, according to the NFL -- gives the union referees a pay bump from $149,000 a year in 2011 to $173,000 in 2013. The pay will rise to $205,000 by 2019.
According to the Business Insider, NFL refs will make up to $200,000 per year for refereering 20 four-hour games by 2019 CE. However, most referee positions for the NFL are usually part time. According to CNN, refs made $25,000 to $70,000 per season in 2009 CE.
Currently the average income of a ref is approximately $50,000 per year. Aside from preventing concussions in the games, another motivating factor for the increase in salary is due to preventing bad calls which have caused millions of dollars, if not more, to be lost in gambling circles.
It is not a voluntary job - top refs earn upwards of £20, 000 for refereeing the World Cup. Since the introduction of the English Premier League, refereeing is now officially a career.
What ever their contract states they get paid depends on their experience
how much does a nhl ref make in a year
because you are mean
$10 for sideline referees and $15 for the center referee per game. That is how much they usually get paid. This is a vague answer. How much you get paid depends on your organization. The higher age group you do the more you get paid.
In general, referees are not paid differently because they speak two or more languages.
Most referees in professional rugby get paid around 50,000 dollars a year. This varies spending upon country and which team.
