FIFA Referee and Assistant Referee Examinations will be held from September 14 to September 22. The decision was made in a video conference of Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) Referee’s Committee on June 29.
Head of BFF Referee’s Department Azad Rahman told daily Sun that a total of 22 referees would take part in the examinations this year.“Total of 22 referees, including 2 female referees, will take part in the examinations from September 14 to September 22. Both Jaya and Salma will take part in the examinations. We took this decision on June 29,” he said.
Jaya Chakma and Salma Islam Moni sat for the examinations last year. Jaya got her license and became the country's first female FIFA referee, but Salma failed to get her license as assistant referee due to age restrictions by FIFA.
