Catch The Young Referee Policy kicks off tomorrow

The much-publicised Ghana Football Association (GFA) ‘Catch Them Young Referee Policy’ is set to begin tomorrow 25th August 2020.


The policy was a part of GFA President, Kurt Okraku’s 24th September 2019 Game-Changing Manifesto is set to bring up youngsters interested in refereeing with integrity to ensure that the corrupt refereeing practices exposed in the Anas Aremeyaw Anas ‘Number 12’ documentary will be eliminated from Ghana football.

The programme is set to bring together active and retired referees as well as instructors as they look to train the young referees on the laws of the game as expected in the regulations of the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA).


Referees who have qualified from the programme will be assessed as they officiate juvenile competitions before being promoted to the higher divisions which include the Ghana Premier League (GPL) and the Divison One League (DOL).
