13 participants drawn from the 10 football regions of Ghana have completed a five-day FIFA/MA Referees Assessors course which took place from 30th July to 3rd August 2020 under the supervision of Referees Manager Alex Kotey.
The course was moderated by Ali Ahmed from Somalia, Jerome Damon(FIFA Development Officer for English Speaking countries in Africa) and Alex Kotey.
“I played a dual role during the course. Per the new GFA structure, it has become imperative that we train and develop our referees and also discover potentials,” Referees Manager Alex Kotey told the GFA Communications team.
“The Assessors will complement the technical instructors’ duties by assessing the referees to ensure, uniformity in the interpretation of the laws, consistency, development and unearthing of brilliant and potential referees both male and female and to also rank our referees,” Mr Kotey added.
Ghana’s Classification and Assessors panel is chaired by Executive Council member, Frederick Acheampong. The panel has retired FIFA referee Justice Yeboah and Emmanuella Aglago, another retired FIFA referee as members.
