Professional Game Match Officials Board
The Professional Game Match Officials Board (PGMOB), and since made a Limited Liability Company (PGMOL, or Professional Game Match Officials Limited), was formed when English association football referees turned professional in 2001, specifically to provide match officials for all games played in the Premier League in England. The Board consists of the three governing bodies' Chief Executives and Referees Managers in addition to The FA's Head of Refereeing. They are tasked with the responsibility of developing excellence in officiating in the English game at professional level. The organisation is headed by former Select Group and FIFA referee Mike Riley.
Riley and colleague Keren Barratt are responsible for selecting which referees will officiate at Premier League matches and appointing officials to fixtures, while David Allison appoints Football League matches and consults with the Football Association over the FA Cup.
The PGMOB replaced the referees' National Review Board. Former FIFA referee Roger Milford commented at the time: "I am sure this will mean more consistency from the officials on points of law which cause controversy." The Select Group of referee, who primarily officiate in the Barclays Premier League, consists of Howard Webb, Martin Atkinson, Michael Dean, Chris Foy, Andre Marriner, Anthony Taylor, Phil Dowd, Mark Clattenburg, Kevin Friend, Michael Jones, Jonathan Moss, Lee Probert, Lee Mason, Neil Swarbrick, Roger East, Robert Madley and Craig Pawson.
The top-flight referees are continually monitored at games and attend fortnightly meetings in which, amongst other matters, their performances, via the use of ProZone[clarification needed], are evaluated.
The PGMOL employs Simon Breivik as Head of Sports Science and he is supported by Adam Kerr. Both Sports Scientists design training programmes, monitor the referees' training data and fitness test the match officials on a regular basis.
They provide a varied set of training sessions at variable intensities to ensure that match officials are at peak fitness to officiate at the top level of the game.
All training sessions and games are carefully scrutinised thanks to the aid of Polar Heart Monitors.
Coincidentally, the founder of Tune Group [Tony Fernandes] is also the Chairman of Queens Park Rangers football club who entered the Premier League from the 2011/2012 season.
Since 2010 the neutrality and competence of PGMOL has been consistently challenged by a group of referees from outside PGMOL who have challenged the statistics that PGMOL have provided about their own work, and the reliability of the referees themselves. This led to the group of referees themselves reviewing 40% of all Premier League matches during the 2011/12 season and assessing the referees.
Numerous errors were cited, and the common assumption that errors will even out in the end was challenged in a regular report published on the web site Untold Arsenal [www.blog.emiratesstadium.info] Although the site itself was started by Arsenal supporters the referees who undertake the reviews have persistently claimed that they are neutral in their reviewing. Since the 2012/2013 season, the referee review activities have been moved to a new website  to start the process of removing any suggested bias whilst Arsenal reports still continue to be published on the original site.
During the course of the 2011/12 season the PGMOL took down its previous public web site and replaced it with a website to which entry was restricted to those with PGMOL allocated passwords.
At the end of the 2011/12 season Untold Arsenal began to summarise its findings in "Ref Review" 
An earlier attempt by the editorial team of the web site to examine how different football associations across Europe monitor referees and the standards of accuracy that are demanded was stopped when none of the associations would agree to complete the questionnaire that they were sent.
