Two World Cups for TA Referees.

A gret new opportunity for all Tournaments Abroad referees who, for the first time in our history, will be involved in two different World Cups.

2018 will in fact be the year of the CONIFA (Confederation Of Indipendent Football Associations) World Cup, which will be held in London, England, UK from June 1st to June 10th 2018 but also the year of the FIFCO (Federation International Football COrporate) World Cup which will instead take place in Montreal, Canada from June 28th to July 2nd 2018.

For the CONIFA World Cup, Tournaments Abroad will be involved in the selection of 4 officials who will work together throughout the tournament and referee national teams the likes of North Cyprus, Abkhazia, Padania and Tibet.

For the FIFCO World Cup instead, Tournaments Abroad will be involved in the selection of 3 referees from North America, 3 from Europe, 1 from South America, 1 from Asia/Oceania and 1 from Africa, who will be the officials taking care of the games there.

All referees selected for the CONIFA World Cup in London will receive free accommodation, meals and local transport throughout the event, as well as CONIFA referee uniforms. All referees selected for the FIFCO World Cup in Montreal will also receive free accommodation, meals, local transport, FIFCO referee uniforms as well as some moderate game fees.

In order to be considered for both event, you must be over the age of 21, and have been a referee in one or more Tournaments Abroad events previously.

Interested, then send your candidacy with a short motivational statement to either our Facebook page or specifying which World Cup you’d like to apply for. Selection will be finalized by the end of February 2018.
