African Times - - Sport -

WORLD football gov­ern­ing body, FIFA has se­lected a record num­ber of South African match of­fi­cials (18) to be on the 2018 Ref­er­ee­ing In­ter­na­tional list.

South Africa is con­sid­ered within the Con­fed­er­a­tion of African Football (CAF) as hav­ing the best ref­er­ees struc­tures and this is ev­i­denced by the high num­ber of of­fi­cials from the coun­try that are as­signed on reg­u­lar ba­sis to of­fi­ci­ate on in­ter­na­tional du­ties. Now FIFA has also con­firmed the coun­try’s num­ber one sta­tus on the African con­ti­nent by list­ing sev­eral South Africans to be on FIFA in­ter­na­tional panel.

The names of the ap­proved of­fi­cials in­clude Ref­er­ees, As­sis­tant Ref­er­ees, Fut­sal Ref­er­ees and Beach Soc­cer Ref­er­ees. “We are very proud of the achieve­ments of our ref­er­ees. The As­so­ci­a­tion con­tin­ues to work tire­lessly to en­sure that we pro­duce ref­er­ees of the high­est qual­ity for the devel­op­ment of our football” SAFA tech­ni­cal com­mit­tee chair­per­son, Natasha Tsich­las.–
