Elite Referee Fyodor Zammit represented the Malta Football Association at the 5 day Winter Course for Elite Referees held at Resort Fundata in Brasov, Romania between 9th and 13th February 2015.


The invitation for the Malta F.A. to send one of its top referees is a result of the optimum collaboration that exists between the Chairman of Referees’ Committee in Romania Kyros Vassaras and MFA Director of Refereeing Adrian Casha.


Kyros Vassaras was the main instructor at this course, during which various important topics will be covered, such as positioning, free kick management, body language, man management, illegal use of arms, holding, dissent, confrontation, challenges, handball, offside, simulation, stopping promising attacks, denial of goal scoring opportunities, additional assistant referees, teamwork and racism.


Fyodor Zammit’s technical ability was assessed through various video tests, whilst his athletic performance will be measured through the rigorous yo-yo fitness test.


This is another fine example of the Malta F.A.’s commitment to provide learning opportunities for its match officials.
