A new opportunity for all Tournaments Abroad referees.
We have recently teamed up with FIFCO, the International Federation of Corporate Football, to offer all our officials the possibility of travelling to Canada during the summer months on a referee exchange.
Throughout the summer referees will be able to referee a mix of corporate and semi-professional games in Montreal and Toronto as well as to attend referee training sessions together with Canadian referees.
Referees will be responsible for covering the cost of their flights to/from Canada, their accommodation and food while receiving game fees in exchange as well as a small stipend for local expenses such as transport and mobile phones.
Corporate games will be played April to July, while semi-professional games will mostly be played from late July to mid-September. Referees are welcome to travel at anytime and stay as long as they want, from a minimum of 2 weeks to the entire summer.
Tournaments Abroad will be organizing up to three groups of referees to travel together. The dates are the following:
1st Group – May 18h to 25th (with the possibility of extending your stay by one or two weeks)
2nd Group – July 23rd to 30th (with the possibility of extending your stay by one or two weeks)
3rd Group – August 10th to 18th (with the possibility of extending your stay bu one or two weeks)
Each group will consist of a minimum of 4 referees to a maximum of 10. The advantage of joining a group is mostly reduced prices of accommodation (shared apartment) and the possibility of being guided by one of our referee instructors. However, referees are welcome to attend also on other dates and can get in touch with us should they want to do so.
