Today we introduce to you the referees for the 1st edition of the TA Referee Academy, Europe’s newest and innovative referee development project.
More than 400 referees applied for this great opportunity and, after a detailed selection process, 40 officials were selected to participate. They represent 18 different countries.
20 referees will take part to Level 1 of the Academy, which will take place at our tournaments in Paris (the Paris World Cup) and Oslo (the Norway Cup) in July 2017.
The remaining 20 will instead be at Level 2 of the Academy, and will instead participate to our events in San Sebastian (the Donosti Cup) and Esbjerg (the Ibercup Scandinavia).
During these two weeks they will be coached, mentored and assessed by our qualified team of referee instructors and professionals, some of whom regularly feature at UEFA and FIFA level.
