THREE locals have been named on the 14 member panel to officiate at the Oceania Champions League group stage in the country next month.

Nadi's Andrew Archari and Labasa's Salesh Chand will officiate as referees while Ravinesh Kumar of Nadi is one of the assistant referees.

The line-up includes a number of the region's most experienced match officials with Kumar appointed for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Achari and Chand are among those who are forging a path for themselves regionally, receiving regular call-ups for the Oceania Football Confederation competitions.

Fiji Football Association referees director Paresh Kishore, former English Premier League and UEFA Champions League referee Steve Bennett of England and Robert Savage of the Cook Islands have been named as the referee assessors.

The Oceania Champions League group stage is scheduled to be held in Lautoka and Ba from April 7 to April 15.
