When you can be selected as video match official?
Referee (analyst) Christina Unkel explains when referees can be selected as video match officials, which is new on the FIFA refereeing international lists since 2021. Here are some criteria, because not everyone can become a video match official.
- Referees can be active and retired
- They must have officiated in the highest national league for 2 years minimum
- They need to have at least 15 games experiences as video referee
- Video referees don’t have to pass the FIFA fitness test for referees
- Video match officials can be on the list in other roles too
Take note this year is the 1st official year of #FIFA #VMO List. It can include active & retired refs. Qualify must have officiated First Division matches in their country for 2 years & at least 15 matches as VMO. One can be a VMO & be on another FIFA list. #thethirdteam #VAR pic.twitter.com/0KJhQnDoLV— Christina Unkel (@ChristinaUnkel) January 8, 2021
