International Referee Compensation

International referees working any NSC Soccer Tournament will receive credit based on U.S. referee compensation levels. For USA CUP Weekend and USA CUP, credits will first be applied to NSC housing and meal expenses. After covering these expenses, any remaining credits may then be applied to travel expenses incurred in coming to the NSC. The NSC is NOT responsible for ANY travel expenses incurred by referees. All referees should be aware that they will have to cover all of their travel expenses.

NSC Residence Hall housing is not available for NSC Spring Cup, NSC Cup, All American Cup, Fall Cup, Kick-Off Challenge Cup, Kick or Treat or Holiday Classic tournaments. Please contact the referee coordinator to discuss application of international referee credits. You may email the referee coordinator or call 763.717.3238.
