Football Kenya Federation is set to conduct a five day FIFA Member Association (MA) referees course between October 7, and October 12, 2019, in Machakos.
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 Referees Committee Chairman Joseph Andere.
“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 set to be conducted 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, will be in attendance.
