Gibraltar Referee at the UEFA Futsal Cup

Futsal Referee Zyl Sheriff officiated last week in the UEFA Futsal Cup qualifying round in Cyprus. His first match was as Second Referee involving the teams Anorthosis Famagusta – the Cypriot hosts – v Leo FC from Armenia. This was followed by a First Referee Appointment for the match between between Leo FC and Rumanian team FCA Classic Chisinau.

Based on performance over the two matches Zyl Sheriff was rewarded with a First Referee Appointment in the final round game contested by Wrexham FC from Wales and Leo FC.

I was thrilled to get my first UEFA appointments as a Futsal Referee. I was joined by three other futsal referees from The Netherlands, Russia and Sweden. The hosts Cyprus provided the timekeeper. We quickly gelled as a team benefiting from a UEFA Referee Observer from the Czech Republic who offered feedback after every match. This tournament went well for me. As expected, I had butterflies in my stomach but as soon as matches kicked off I was confidently at ease enjoying the experience and making new friends. I encourage young people to consider a career in futsal refereeing and with the right development getting opportunities to referee in the international scene.

We need futsal referees for the ever increasing interest in the Game of Futsal. Any person interested in becoming a Futsal Referee please email for further information.
