NAIROBI, 1 October, 2020: Football Kenya Federation has rolled out a three-day Physical Endurance Test exercise for Referees who will be officiating in the BetKing Premier League, Betika National Super League, and BetKing Division One League matches.
240 match officials are set to undergo the 3-day physical assessment program, which culminates on Saturday, October 3, 2020, and whose core aim is to test their physical preparedness to handle matches.
Theory sessions, to be capped off with a written exam to test their knowledge on the laws of the game, have also been lined up.
“Our target is to not only ascertain the referees’ physical shape but also keep them abreast with the laws of the game,” said FKF Referees manager Sylvester Kirwa.
The course is being spearheaded by Steven Oduor, Edward Lumbugu, Caleb Amwayi, Margaret Omondi, and Sylvester Kirwa.
