National Football League referees make around $173,000 per year and are set to make $205,000 per year in 2019. On average, this salary is for working about 20 four hour games a year. Since most of the games occur on the weekend many of these referees choose to have other full-time jobs. It’s a long and challenging road to becoming an NFL referee, but for those lucky enough to get the job it makes a pretty great part-time gig.
