HISTORY AND LEGACY

FOUNDED BY

Soccer Legend Mario H. “Mack” Alarcon.

Originally named Florida State Referees (FSR), Mack organized Florida’s first referee program in 1964. We were officially founded in 1965 by Mack, along with his friends Fred Stauber and Ray Thompson. They became the first three people in the entire southeastern United States to register as referees with the United States Soccer Federation. 57 years later, we’re still kicking this ball down the field. Come join the legacy!
