In 2017 and 2019, the tournament officials were able to win various FIFA referees from all over the world who directed the games of the Referee Cup. The first contacts have already been made and applications received for 2021, let us be surprised where the tournament referees from the 15th Referee Cup come from!
The tournament management will be happy to accept further applications. Eight to ten FIFA or first division referees are then invited.

Günther Thielking

Special thanks go to Günther Thielking (Hagen), member of the DFB referee teaching committee and referee instructor at the Lower Saxony Football Association, who has already announced that he will continue to support the referees at the Referee Cup in 2021 and work as a liaison officer.
