A total of seven new referee observers have been enrolled by the Refereeing Centre to offer their services during the coming season.

A seminar related to technical and administrative procedures was organised recently during which Alexander Arena, Head of the Observers’ & Instructors’ Unit, explained the role of a referee observer and also gave an overview of what a referee expects from him / her.

To this extent, experienced Referee Observers were also present to narrate their own experiences to their new colleagues.

The list of new entrants includes former FIFA Referees Adrian Azzopardi and Marco Borg, former Premier League referees Andrè Arciola, Roberto Buontempo and Reno Refalo, as well as Emanuel Calleja and Tanya Baldacchino (the first official female referee observer in Malta).
