  • The Changes to the Laws of the Game for Season 2020/21
  • Handball offences
  • Impact on an opponent from an offside position
  • Application of denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity  (DOGSO) and Stopping promising attacks (SPAS)
  • Recognising Challenges
  • Illegal use of the Arms at challenges
  • Real Time video Tests.

The Gibraltar FA's Referee Manager, Adrian Bacarisa was delighted with how the weekend went: 

“Our match officials are now ready for the new season. They are raring to go when the green light is given for the start of competitive football and get into the routine of officiating.”
