On the 9th of February we hosted a Zoom session together with American PRO referees Chris & Tori Penso.
Chris Penso is a MLS referee since 2009 and previously refereed the Indian Super League in India. He joined the FIFA list in 2013 and his first international assignment was on January 30, 2013, when he refereed a match between Mexico and Denmark. He was a FIFA referee throughout 2015.
Tori Penso is also a professional referee. She became a USSF referee in 2013 and was assigned to women’s collegiate tournaments and later the NWSL. Following the 2019 Generation Adidas Cup, she was invited to join the Professional Referee Organization’s PRO2 development program. She later served as an AR and 4th official at several MLS and USL games. In 2020, she became the first woman to referee a Major League Soccer match in 20 years.
