The FIFA Referees Committee announced on Thursday Lists of selected referees and assistants for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

After evaluating the quality of their work and the performance shown in FIFA tournaments, as well as in other national and international tournaments in recent years, and in close cooperation with the six confederations, they chose 36 referees, 69 assistant referees and 24 members of the video referee team.

Pierluigi Collina, Chairman of the FIFA Referees Committee explains: “As always, we have put quality above all else, and the referees selected are of the highest caliber in the world. The 2018 World Cup has been very successful, among other things, for refereeing excellence, and we will present Everything to make it better in Qatar.”

The Road to Qatar 2022 project started in 2019. More than 50 tripartite referees were analyzed as potential candidates, and this project has undergone extensive preparations.

“The pandemic affected our activities, especially in 2020 and early 2021. Fortunately, it was way away from the World Cup and we had enough time to prepare the candidates. We have announced the names in advance so far because we want to work more equally with the referees appointed for the World Cup and their follow-up. In the coming months, the message is clear: Do not rest on your laurels, keep working hard and prepare rigorously for the World Cup,” said Collina.

Massimo Busacca, Director of the FIFA Arbitration Branch, ensures that referees receive all necessary support from FIFA, as their preparation is essential.
