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.

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!!!
