Speaking about the FIFA Winter Camp, the Gibraltar FA’s Referee Manager, Adrian Bacarisa, stated:
“Once a year we take the opportunity to hold a FIFA MA Course for Referees. This is the fifth time that we have held such a FIFA supported training camp which has been held either abroad or in Gibraltar. These camps provide referees, assistant referees, referee observers and selected lower category referees the opportunity to live as a team spending five days together sharing experiences and team building. The camp also exposes them to more professionalism as we work on getting our match officials to be better and minimising any potential mistakes.
This year a number of guest speakers took us through their own expertise providing a variety of topics increasing the knowledge and awareness of our match officials. I would also thank the Gibraltar FAs’ U17 & U19 national squads, FCB Magpies, Glacis Utd FC, Manchester 62 FC and Europa Point FC for providing teams to play friendly matches during the camp.”
