The Dutch Referee Blog 10th anniversary video’s

Dutch Referee Blog 10th anniversary video, that’s what I want to create. And lots of referees did already, which makes this anniversary very special. Below you’ll find the released video’s. And at the bottom you can find how you can add a last tip.

All you have to do is share one tip in a video message. I’d be very happy if you want to help me with that. Check below how easy you can participate.

Jan in video on phone

Ln June 1st 2010 I started this wonderful journey with writing blogs and stories about refereeing. What started with mainly positive attention – as there was none in most media then – evolved to a website where referees from all over the world can learn and become a better referee. Now all these refs, observers or referee coaches will help you by sharing their tips.

Anniverary video part 1

With Bobby Madden, Scottish Elite referee, former FIFA AR Hakan Anaz, Cristiano da Cunha from Switzerland, FIFA Futsal referee Antionios Adamopoulos from Greece and Austrian observer René Zechner.

Anniversary video part 2

With for example former FIFA referees Kevin Blom, Esther Azzopardi and Jan Boterberg, who I joined in the Belgian online referee workouts.

The video idea

I try to put lots of time and effort in this website and now you can do me a favour.

The idea is that you make a horizontal video with your phone where you say: “Hello, my name is [name] and I am a [referee/observer/instructor] in [city/country]. My tip for referees is: [the tip].”

Everyone can participate, as we all have some tips to share. So far I got input from young promising referees to 3 times World Cup referees.

In the anniversary month I’ll share these videos, also in a long video along with the tips from others. It doesn’t have to be filmed with a professional camera, a phone is fine. The clip will be published on my blog and its social channels.

Love to hear from you!
