Football officiating is not an extremely lucrative hobby, but then again you will see a positive cash flow. Unlike other avocations like golf or hunting, the time spent at officiating will put some money in your pockets. KFOA members currently earn between $25 - $75 per game, depending on the level of play. If you're fortunate to work your way into the college ranks, you can currently earn anywhere from $150+ per game for NAIA and NCAA Division III games, to $500 - $1200 or more for Division I, based on the conference. The higher you go, the better the income and perks.
