The FA, in partnership with Kick It Out, are hosting a Black, Asian and mixed Ethnicity Referee Conference on Sunday 24 July 2022 at Villa Park, Aston Villa Football Club.
As a County FA, we would like to ensure that we have representation at this conference.
If any of our referees would like to attend, please register your interest HERE
The event will provide a unique platform to discuss well documented challenges of lack of Black, Asian and Mixed Ethnicity Referees at elite level in our national game with representation from key stakeholders, decision makers and cross section of active referees in the game, working together to find solutions for a more inclusive and diverse officiating workforce.
This is the first of its kind in refereeing, offering a unique platform for debate, education and challenge, with a collaborative mindset approach to devising a long lasting solution roadmap.
Mohammed Ghafoor (Ghaf), one of our referee ambassadors, will be attending this event and it would be great to have more of our referees in attendance.
If you would like to attend, please contact Ghaf on the following details: GHaf6153@yahoo.co.uk or 07971 514329, and he can help support with joint travel.
