SA refs make prospective list for Brazil

2012-05-25 10:06

South Africa could have two match officials representing the country at the 2014 Fifa World Cup Brazil after Daniel Bennett and Zakhele Siwela were selected to the prospective list of match officials for the tournament.

Bennett and Siwela appear on the Caf (Confederation of African Football) list of match officials after being appointed by the Fifa Referees Committee.

All match officials will undergo a rigorous process to make it to the final list.

A dedicated panel of Fifa Referees Committee members and a team of Fifa instructors will closely assist and supervise the performance of the prospective match officials during the process.

They will be expected to attend an assessment seminar for prospective referees in September and assistant referees in October and November in Zurich where they also undergo a series of medical and physical assessment sessions, including the Fifa Fitness Test.

Bennett and Siwela are among 21 referees and assistant referees selected from Africa, and among 156 match officials in total.
