We start!!!

For a long time the tournament crew have weighed up, now there could be a much more favorable pandemic situation in the summer. It was therefore decided to intensify the preparations for the tournament and to send out the invitations at least once.
Certainly there will be restrictions, but nevertheless the organizational crew would like to give the large referee family a platform again to meet, play football and celebrate together. Of course, the hygiene concept specified by the host football club for the sportsground will have to be taken into account.
Negotiations are already underway with some of the FIFA referees from different continents who are to officiate the matches in the tournament – names will of course only be given once visas and flight tickets have been confirmed.
Further information about the event will be published here on the homepage, supported by reports on Facebook and Instagram.

Greetings from Cairo

What a fantastic greeting from Cairo to the Referee Cup: during the African Women’s Champions League final tournament in 2021 there was also be a referee seminar of the best referees in Africa. And three participants sent a photo greeting (from left to right): Adia Cisse (Senegal, FIFA assistant, was in Lueneburg in 2019), Gladys Lengwe (Zambia, FIFA instructor, 2017) and Bernadettar Kwimbira (Malawi, FIFA assistant, 2017). If you want to meet such great colleagues, come to Lueneburg in June 2022!!!

SVE referee talent promoted

Immediately selected the right friend: Hanna Hofmann (right) next to Germany’s No. 1, FIFA – Referee Riem Hussein

After she had already brought her younger brother Max as referee to SV Eintracht and she switched now from TSV Adendorf to the Hasenburg shortly before the deadline: Hanna Marie Hofmann.
The 17-year-old high school student is well-known at the SV Eintracht: with SVE top referee Celina Boehm she was an assistant several times in the women’s regional league and the men’s district league.
Since you don’t have to be a good actor as a referee, her role as “Jolina Bergmann” in the well-known ARD telenovela “Rote Rosen”, which is mainly filmed in Lueneburg, helped her as an exercise (see Landeszeitung from February, 4th 2020 ).
To rise her career she belongs to the referee talent teams of Heide-Wendland (local) and the NFV district of L√ľneburg. The NFV district of L√ľneburg reports on the course for district talents that took place in Rotenburg on September 18 on its website: talent course for referees in Rotenburg (Wuemme)
And at the end of September it even went up a podium: Hanna passed the women’s association referee course in Barsinghausen with a good result and is now referee in the Lower Saxony women’s “Oberliga” (4th league). Well done!
