no benefits are likely.what makes you think they are paid?

its about junior B+ level some are better some worse. the best icelandic players usually go onto sweden/norway to develop more. im sure someone could get a job being a ref but if youre looking at that as full time to make a living you shouldnt count on it.

here is a link for more information
