HorizonWebRef.com allows referees with different levels and types of experience to publish schedules of their availability. Other users can then browse through listings of available referees within a given area and immediately request scheduling for an event. The service also includes a live chat feature and social network support to expand communication and discovery options. Similarly, Assignr.com offers scheduling tools for its members that allows both interested parties to communicate with each other and make arrangements for different games.

Many official sporting entities, such as the American Youth Soccer Organization, offer referee scheduling tools through their websites. As these organizations function in an official capacity, they often include more strict guidelines for qualifying as a referee. For a smaller or more casual game, it is possible to post an ad on a free classifieds site such as Craigslist.org seeking an individual with referee skills for a specific time and date. Many community locations contain public bulletin broads for posting similar print ads as well.
