Match Officials Appointed For Concacaf Gold Cup

May 18, 2019

The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football [Concacaf] announced the referees and assistant referees that have been selected for the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup, which Bermuda will participate in.

The 48 match officials were required to pass several assessments and fitness tests, to ensure they could be considered for Concacaf’s most prestigious national team competition.

“In preparing our elite referees for Concacaf’s premier competition for national teams, we have left no stone unturned. The team of selected officials represents our Confederation’s best in terms of football knowledge, technical ability as well as physical fitness preparation,” said Concacaf Director of Refereeing Brian Hall.

“We just completed a five-day pre-tournament training focused on our objective of preparing the referee team for excellence. We are confident that our officials will be prepared to deliver an outstanding performance when the competition kicks off on June 15 at Rose Bowl Stadium in Los Angeles, California.”

As part of the Memorandum of Understanding with the Asian Football Confederation [AFC], Concacaf also announced that a trio of referees from Qatar will officiate matches during this summer’s tournament.

“Following the successful participation of Concacaf Referees in the 2019 Asian Cup, we are proud to continue collaborating with the AFC in our tournaments. This is the first time that a trio of match officials from AFC will be participating in a Concacaf Gold Cup, as part of our partnership with the Confederation. This exchange complements our efforts to raise the level of refereeing across Concacaf,” added Hall.

The Concacaf Referee Committee approved the list of participants, who were reviewed and selected by the Concacaf Referee Technical Advisory Team, across regional group of refereeing experts.

This team includes members of the Targeted Advanced Referee Program [TARP]. TARP referees are part of the development strategy of the Confederation to provide an opportunity of working with elite officials in order to prepare them for future competitions.

    it’s a shame that I don’t see not even one match official from Bermuda, our soccer sport is going down the wrong road, the referee association should be ashamed and held accountable for not having not even one official and the finals. smh
