How to become a FIBA Honorary Referee?

(see FIBA Internal Regulations, Book 3, Chapter 6, articles 221, 222, 223, 224)

Each national member federation of FIBA has the right to choose candidates for the title of “FIBA Honorary Referee” from amongst its former FIBA Referees and persons who have served basketball in the development of referees. A FIBA Honorary Referee cannot be, at the same time, a FIBA active Referee.

A national member federation may have an unlimited number of FIBA Honorary Referees.

The proposal of the national member federation must be accompanied by the following documents for each candidate:
- Honorary Referee Information Form;
- One (1) recent colour passport-sized photo;
- Copy of the passport showing family and first name(s), date of birth and legal nationality.

If the proposal is accepted by the Secretary General, the FIBA Secretariat will issue the FIBA Honorary Referee license, valid for life, for a nominal fee to be paid only once (Refer to article 3-305).
