Cooperation with the Thuringian Football Association

For the first time the young company Referee Academy has succeeded in convincing a regional association of its digital work. The 9 district refereeing tutors and the teaching staff members of the Thuringian Football Association (TFV) are using the services of Referee Academy for the year 2020. 

Digital pioneer in refereeing

After a test phase in 2019, those responsible at the TFV decided to use the Referee Academy digital database in the following year as well. “We are glad that we were able to convince a regional association to place their trust in us with our high-quality work. With the RefExpert Professional Edition we are making a significant contribution to simplifying the teaching work of the TFV. Digitalisation is advancing in every sector – Referee Academy is proud to be the digital pioneer in refereeing and to have this confirmed by the TFV”, said executive director Aleksandar Lukic.

User-friendly platform for daily teaching work

The head of the talent group “Rennsteiger” and member of the TFV referees committee, Sandy Hoffmann, is also looking forward to the cooperation: “It helps our district teaching staff enormously in the preparation of LOTG tests with the corresponding degree of difficulty. In addition, it is a user-friendly platform for the daily teaching work, which our staff likes to use. The quality is right and the time savings for us volunteers should not be underestimated,” said Hoffmann, who is also an observer for the North-East German FA (NOFV) in the 4th division (Regionalliga) and the German FA (DFB) in the youth and women’s national leagues and is also a member of the DFB competence team of referees.

Continuous improvement

Executive Director Nils Voigt sees further development potential in the cooperation with regard to software quality: “We use the practical experience of the teaching staff in handling our software to continuously improve and expand the Professional Edition”.

Referee Academy would like to thank the TFV for the confidence they have placed in their project and attaches great importance to a successful cooperation!

Law changes inside!

It took a long time, but the more than 5,000 questions had to be thoroughly checked and revised. Now we have finally brought everything up to date*!

Of course we also updated all presentations and info sheets to the 2019/20 season. Teaching staff in particular benefit from up-to-date teaching materials and don’t have to fight with old materials for several weeks and months.

LOTG changes are included in the section 0.1.19 – so you can deal specifically with the changes.

Experience shows that we find 99% of all questions about LOTG changes, but the last percentage is sometimes not noticeable. If you should find any error, please report it to us via the “Report errors” function, so that we can check it. We will gladly reward you with a free month of the Standard Edition!
