Vulivuli works with new referees

TOP Fiji football referee Finau Vulivuli is working on getting the next group of female referees ready for national and international duties.

She started this campaign with the Southern Women Football referees course over the weekend at the Fiji Football Association headquarters in Vatuwaqa.

Twenty five participants were registered to participate in the day-long event on Saturday but only 10 turned up because of the adverse weather conditions in the Southern Division last week.

"It was just the beginner's level where both theory and practical work was conducted," Vulivuli, the first Fijian female international referee, said.

"The participants were from the Lami, Rewa, Nasinu and Suva areas."

Vulivuli said with the women's club competition at the district level a must, the demand for female referees in the domestic competition had grown.

"We want to encourage female participation in match officiating.

"Our aim is to have all female referees and officials in this year's women's IDC.

"Since club competition is a must at the district level to qualify for the IDC, the need for female referees has grown."

Vulivuli said there was a lot of opportunity for female officials at the international stage.

Luisa Diloni is one of the upcoming female referees, who recently officiated at a qualifying tournament in New Zealand.

Vulivuli said they would hold a beginners course for interested referees in the West in two weeks time.
