A groundbreaking specialized refereeing course which brought together newest referees on the FIFA panel has ended at the CAF Centre of Excellence in Mbankomo, Cameroon.
The programme which ran from 4th through 9th August is the latest addition to other match officials’ development programmes and CAF Refereeing Development structures after the Elite A, Elite B, Young Talent and Promising Referees.
The objective of the course was to equip the new match officials with necessary knowledge and skills for the effective control of the game at a higher level as well as provide them guidance on trends in modern refereeing.
Participants were also taken through the assessment of the severity of offences and sanctions to be administered in match situations and the explanation of the new CAF online reporting system.
Thirty (30) referees including nine women from 24 member associations took part in the historic course which was led by instructors Alex Kotey (Ghana), Ali Ahmed (Somalia), Cherifi Naserdine (Algeria) and Stella Elogi (Nigeria).
