A nice photo series from the referee training course in Malaga. I’m very happy Uefa gave me permission to show these pictures, made by Sportsfile, on my blog. They will give you an idea what referees do during a winter course.
All referees will have to do some physical training sessions and have to pass the FIFA fitness test.

Lots of classroom sessions during the training camp in Malaga, which helps the referees improve on the pitch. With top class speakers like Pierluigi Collina, Hugh Dallas, but also a Laws of the Game test.

You need top be topfit as referee. That’s why you need a medical check-up and a visuel check at the winter course.
