The FIFA Member Association referees course, which kicked off on Monday, October 7, 2019, entered its fourth day on Thursday with KPL referees taking part.
The course is part of Football Kenya Federation’s policy of ongoing training for referees to ensure that standards not only continue to improve but the Laws of the Game also apply in the same way across the board.
“This course will entail fitness tests, new techniques, and modules as well as amendments to the rules of the game,” said FKF Manager Sylvester Kirwa.
“As a Federation, we are committed to improving officiating standards and creating capacity with the sole aim of comprehensively developing the game at a minimal cost to the beneficiaries,” he added.
The course is being spearheaded by FIFA Instructors Ali Ahmed (Technical) and Houssein Ali (Fitness), with FIFA Referees Development Officer Jerome K Damon also set to be in attendance.
35 referees, from the FIFA panel as well as from the top tier Kenyan Premier League, are taking part and will be duly certified upon its completion.
