The referees for two World Floorball Championship events have been announced. Three female referee pairs have been selected for the competitions. The referees will represent five different countries.
The IFF Referee Committee has appointed seven referee pairs to officiate the Women’s World Floorball Championships taking place between 25th of November and 5th of December in the city of Uppsala, Sweden. Their work will be overseen by the Head of Referees, Nihada Cenanovic from Sweden and three Referee Observers: Radek Hora from Czech Republic, Marjo Alanko from Finland and Inge Haug from Norway.
– Challenge for the nomination of course was that the referees as well as the players have not been refereeing or playing many international matches during the last 18 months, but I’m sure that the nominated referees are the ones, which are able to handle all the games in both WFCs, says Mr. Carlos Lopez, the chair of the IFF Referee Committee.
– The most important thing however is that we will be able to revert to international events after the global Covid-19 situation even though there still are challenges, he concludes
