Referee Diana Mukasa for U-17 World Cup

There is a reason to smile: FIFA assistant referee Diana Mukasa has landed an invitation to FIFA U17 World Cup.

Ugandan FIFA woman referee Diana Mukasa has landed an invitation to officiate at this year’s FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Azerbaijan.

Mukasa is one of the only three referees appointed from the entire African continent. Others from the CAF region are Amegee Aissata 37, from Togo and Aglago Emmanuella 33 from Ghana.

The list has 14 referees and 28 assistants in total but three of these (one referee and two assistants) are a reserve trio from UEFA.

An official communication received from FIFA this morning and signed by the Secretary General Jerome Valckle, indicates that the competition matches will run from 22nd September to 13th October. But prior to this, the pre-competition activities will be conducted from September 16 to 21.

All match officials including Mukasa are expected to arrive in Baku on Sunday 16 September 2012. FIFA has warned that no match official is supposed to be accompanied by any other person during their entire assignment with FIFA.

FIFA has further directed that all referees and their assistants undergo medical assessments from their respective home countries in accordance with the FIFA Pre-Competition Medical Assessment (PCMA) Form. If a referee is found to be unfit or injured upon her arrival in Baku, FIFA will send her home at the expense of the concerned member association.

Mukasa becomes the second Uganda referee after Ali Tomusange to officiate at the World Cup tournaments.
