2 months ago

In another sign of the determination of the leadership of the Ghana Football Association to enhance the quality of Refereeing in Ghana , Ghanaian referees, Juliet Appiah and Bless Yao Selorm, are in Saudi Arabia for a three-day FIFA Referees Workshop being organised by the Saudi Arabia Football Federation (SAFF).

The two Referees, who referee in the Ghana Women's Premier and Division One Leagues are in Saudi Arabia at the invitation of the SAFF, under a collaboration between the SAFF and the Ghana Football Association.

The seminar aims to build the capacities of participants whilst providing a platform for the exchange of ideas and experiences from different countries.

In his brief remarks ahead of the departure of the Referees, GFA President, Simeon- Okraku, expressed his optimism that the Ghanaian Referees would gain invaluable knowledge and exposure through their participation in the Workshop. He went on to admonish Referees Juliet Appiah and Bless Yao Selorm to pick vital lessons from the Workshop and prepare to share these insights with their colleague Referees upon their return from Saudi Arabia.

The trip by the two Referees to the Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is part of a partnership between the two countries and is in keeping with the capacity building ethos of the GFA'.
