REFEREEING: Enthusiasm, discipline are key to success

The seven day course for beginners, senior referees and match assessors has given the instructors a lot of hope that the future is bright for Uganda. Under the Sports officials Consultancy, Ugandan referees were privilege to host two officials with vast experience in the field of refereeing.  Janie Frampton and David Frampton have been in Uganda since Monday trying to pass on any necessary knowledge that would help the local referees improve their job.  

‘I’m impressed with what I have seen in the three days so far for this course. The levels of passion and enthusiasm are high’ said Janie Frampton who was addressing the participants at FUFA House. Janie is former FIFA referee who officiated at the 1999 and 2003 FIFA women world cups.

The course has attracted students from Makerere University, MUBS and Kyambogo University who are taking on refereeing courses for the first time.

‘Discipline is key to success. You need to believe in yourselves to attain greater things in life’ added Janie.

The FUFA CEO Edgar Watson attended as well as he used the same opportunity to officially close and open the function which will see Uganda operate the first ever referees Academy in Africa.
