  • The referees

    The referees are drawn from the six continental federations that operate under FIFA's umbrella, but, as with the spread of teams involved, the allocation is not strictly equal, with some confederations providing more than others.

    - AFC (Asian Football Confederation) will be represented by 6 referees
    - CAF (Confederation of African Football) will have 6 referees
    - CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) will have 6 referees
    - CONMEBOL (South American Football Confederation) will have 6 referees
    - OFC (Oceania Football Confederation) will have 2 referees
    - UEFA (Union of European Football Associations ) will have 10 referees.


    There is also the matter that there will be no referee from Great Britain since WC 1938 i think. Mark Clattenburg (you might remember him at the champions league final when he was shaking his head while Pepe was trying to win an Oscar ) was no more available as he forfeited his place when he left his job at Premier League and moved to Saudi Arabia. The FA attempted to replace Clattenburg but its request was rejected by Fifa. The truth however is that England doesn't have a big number of referees qualify for games under FIFA.

    According to reports, the most experienced and qualified referees will be paid $70,000 for their services at the World Cup with a further $3,000 per game officiated.

    Assistant referees will receive a lower fee of $25,000 with an extra $2,000 per game.

    The reasoning for choosing those referees were (according to FIFA): “based on each referee’s skills and personality.The Commission also put into consideration each referee’s level of understanding of football and ability to read both the game and the various tactics employed by teams’’.

    Something that happened 4 days ago: Referee Fahad Al Mirdasi (Saudi Arabia) who was at first among the selected refereed for this WC, has been banned for life from the Saudi FA (his assistants also) and replaced by UAE referees by FIFA. The reason for banning him was "match fixing" as Saudi Arabia's FA says Al Mirdasi asked for money to help Al-Hittihad win the King's Cup final with Al-Faisaly

                Thanks man this is very useful!Let's hope that we will be able to make some profit on bookings When the stakes are high there should be tension and if the lines are fair that is possible

                    Let's not forget the VAR system that will be in place.

                    Potentially it could increase the number of yellow/red cards if VAR is reviewing off the ball incidents that may be missed by the referee and on field assistants.

                      Referees that have been announced for the second games so far. I'm posting them here since the threads are not open yet.

                      Russia - Egypt
                      Referee: Enrique Cáceres (PAR)

                      Portugal - Morocco
                      Referee: Mark Geiger (USA)

                      Uruguay - Saudi Arabia
                      Referee: Clément Turpin (FRA)

                      Iran - Spain
                      Referee: Andrés Cunha (URU)

                      Note1: Finally Caceres. Too bad he is n a game where host is playing

                      Note2: Turpin is the first UEFA referee whose national team is playing.

                      Note3: Geiger being appointed for Morocco v Portugal should rate this game as an important one. Morocco got Cakir at their first game, can't say they are very lucky

                        So far I must say refereeing is fantastic, very little mistakes, they are not using cards, really top notch!

                          For tomorrow's games

                          Denmark - Australia
                          Referee: Antonio Mateu Lahoz (ESP)

                          France - Peru
                          Referee: Mohammed Abdulla Mohamed (UAE)

                          Argentina - Croatia
                          Referee: Ravshan Irmatov (UZB)

                          The referee at France v Peru is the one who replaced the Saudi Arabia one (see above). Not sure if he is the best for this game unless FIFA had plans anyway to put a referee from a certain federation. Knowing how both play, this can be a tense game and hope Mohammed be able to handle it. Risky choice or we will see a Brazil v Switzerland again

                            Referees for 22.06

                            Brazil - Costa Rica
                            Referee: Björn Kuipers (NED)

                            Nigeria - Iceland
                            Referee: Matthew Conger (NZL)

                            Serbia - Switzerland
                            Referee: Felix Brych (GER)

                            Note: There will or are already some talks out there for Conger. In world cup 2014 and at the game Nigeria v Bosnia (against a european team that is, as it is now also), the referees were from OFC federation like now. Does the name O'Leary mean anything to you? Yes, he was the referee of that game and he was also from OFC. There was a picture back then on internet with him and the Nigerian keeper
                            .

                            The whole talks started after a bad decision he made (assistant showed offside and Bosnian goal was cancelled). I'm not pointing to something dirty, but with this background, let's see what Conger will do.

                            P.S.: Around 25.000 people were signing for FIFA to drop him, and he got some death threads. He is a teacher now in a small school

                              Belgium - Tunisia
                              Referee: Jair Marrufo (USA)

                              South Korea - Mexico
                              Referee: Milorad Mazic (SRB)

                              Germany - Sweden
                              Referee: Szymon Marciniak (POL)

                              The big names have started taking action with Irmatov at Argentina v Croatia today, Brych tomorrow and now Mazic. Lets hope for better football
