The time has come when modern technology should help referees in important matches. This was stated in an interview with the head of the sports director of the ICSD Brice Allain. He also talked about the need for deaf umpires to keep their composure on the pitch.
Question: What does the World Deaf Football Championships mean for a referee?
“It means a lot, because it only happens once in a lifetime. Therefore, I advise all deaf arbitrators not to miss this opportunity. This is a big responsibility, but it should be considered in terms of preparation. It must be understood that the 4th World Deaf Football Championships is a combination of many things. You are here because you are worthy. When a match starts, it’s like diving into water. It is necessary to abstract and whistle in time, not to think that this is the World Cup, and treat it like an ordinary match.
We will continue and discuss with these arbitrators.
