Ref­eree ex­change pro­gramme with the San Marino foot­ball fed­er­a­tion

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

After last month’s ref­eree ex­change week­end with the Ir­ish FA – when Mal­tese and Ir­ish of­fi­cials con­trolled do­mes­tic top level games in each other’s coun­try – the com­ing week­end will see an­other such ex­pe­ri­ence ma­te­ri­alise one more time with the San Marino Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion.

Elite of­fi­cials Matthew De Gabriele and Eti­enne Man­gion (ref­er­ees), Peter Abela and Christo­pher Az­zopardi (as­sis­tant ref­er­ees), will be trav­el­ling to the Repub­lic of San Marino to con­trol the fol­low­ing matches:

Tomorrow at 3pm, Matthew De Gabriele will take charge of Campo Ju­venes vs Do­gana Lib­er­tas in Mon­tec­chio.

On Sun­day at 9.15pm, Eti­enne Man­gion will take charge of Campo La Fiorita vs Tre Penne in Mon­tec­chio.

(In both matches, Matthew De Gabriele and Eti­enne Man­gion will al­ter­nate their roles as ref­eree and fourth of­fi­cial).

They will be ac­com­pa­nied by Paul Caru­ana, who will be ref­eree ob­server of the fol­low­ing matches:

Tomorrow at 9.15pm, Do­mag­nano vs Fiorentino, in Ser­ravalle.

On Sun­day at 3pm, Vir­tus vs Fol­gore in Do­mag­nano.

On the same dates, ref­er­ees and as­sis­tant ref­er­ees from San Marino will be in Malta to con­trol two Premier League and Di­vi­sion 1 matches; they will be ac­com­pa­nied by a ref­eree ob­server from San Marino who will be ap­pointed for two dif­fer­ent Premier League and Di­vi­sion 1 matches.

Such matches will serve well for our up­com­ing of­fi­cials, not only on a per­sonal level but also for their fu­ture lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional ref­er­ee­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

These ex­changes are an on­go­ing pro­gramme un­der­taken by the Malta FA to ame­lio­rate the ref­er­ee­ing sec­tor by giv­ing our top cat­e­gory of­fi­cials the op­por­tu­ni­ties for fur­ther devel­op­ment.

Later on this sea­son, the Malta FA Ref­er­ee­ing Cen­tre will be an­nounc­ing other such ref­eree ex­changes.
