Eighteen Ghanaian referees and some staff of the IT and Communications Departments have begun a five day training Workshop on CAF Referees Education and Learning program known as REL at the Ghanaman Soccer Center of Excellence at Prampram.
The training began on Saturday, October 9, will end on Wednesday, October 13, 2021.
The CAF REL training is a newly established officiating software that is used to access referee performance and match analysis to rate and analyse the general performance of referees after competitions and tournaments
This would also help the Referees Department of the Ghana Football Association to assess officials during and after competitions for proper evaluation and ratings.
The facilitators for this program include FIFA retired referee Lim Kee Chong and Ramy Gamal, the IT Manager of the Confederation of African Football.
The REL training is one of many interventions that have been introduced by FIFA, CAF and the GFA to help Ghanaian referees improve their performance in both domestic and International assignments.
