International Umpire Appointments

For a match to be ranked on the INF World Rankings umpires must be appointed by the INF.

All umpires appointed to international ranking matches are independent of the teams playing in line with INF policy.

INF umpires are volunteers carrying out their role alongside work or study. INF would like to thank employers, families and friends for the great support they give to allow the umpires to represent INF.

An International Umpires’ Award (IUA) runs for a four year period during which time umpires are expected to show ongoing improvement. Towards the end of the four year cycle IUA go through a re-endorsement process to see if they are reappointed for a further four years.

The current International Umpires’ Award (IUA) are:
