Referees in the country are expected to start producing electronic match reports for super league games following the training they are undergoing.
Referees based in the northern region were trained on the same in the city of Mzuzu and Football Development Coordinator for the north, Robert Mziza, said things were changing everyday and the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) wants the referees to be producing match reports digitally.
The training is being offered to the referees ahead of kick off for the new football season early next month.
“We were producing reports manually where forms were printed and information written there but now, we are saying let’s go digital and so these referees have been trained to produce their reports digitally.
“This will require computers and data bundles and so at a later stage FAM and SULOM will look into that so that they may provide computers and data bundles to kick start the system,” explained Mziza.
Chairperson for Northern Region Referees Association, Misheck Juba, welcomed the development saying it is was a simple way of writing match reports.
“We welcome the system as it is better than the previous one where we were using forms. Sometimes reports took about four days to finish but with this new system it will certainly be easy,” remarked Juba.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
