Competitions Using Additional Assistant Referees

Following up on a previous story, FIFA released the names of the competitions that will be using additional assistant referees today.  Here’s the list:

Asian Football Confederation (AFC): AFC President’s Cup 2010 (24-26 September)
Confederação Brasileira de Futebol (CBF): Campeonato Baiano de Futebol Feminino 2010 (Sept-Dec 2010), Campeonato Carioca de 2011
Federación Mexicana de Fútbol Asociación (FMF): Torneo Clausura 2011, Torneo Apertura 2011 and Torneo Clausura 2012
Fédération Française de Football (FFF): Coupe de la Ligue 2010/2011 (League Cup)
Union des associations européennes de football (UEFA): UEFA Champions League 2010/2011 and 2011/2012, UEFA Europa League 2010/2011 and 2011/2012, and UEFA Super Cup 2010 and 2011.
Also approved, but pending confirmation of the specific competitions, were official competitions of the Federação Baiana, the Federação Paulista and Federação Pernambucana in Brazil.


FIFA also confirmed that goal-line technology is going to be on the agenda when the International Football Association Board (IFAB) meets in October 2010.  Let’s hand it to FIFA:  they promised to make changes to reduce errors in officiating and so far they have been true to their word.
