Meet the officials who will lead today’s Rio 2016 quarter-finals

FIFA has decided the names of the refereeing teams who will lead the four Quarterfinals in Brazil. The first match of the day and possibly the most sonorous, United States – Sweden, will be whistled by the only women to referee five World Cup matches last year, Anna Marie-Keighley- she is accompanied by her OFC team. The last World Cup final referee, Kateryna Monzul from Ukraine, is appointed to referee China – Germany.

Canada – France, a replay of the Third Place Playoff match from London 2012, will be taken charge of by the Uruguyan, Claudia Umpierrez.

The last match of the day and surely the hardest atmosphere of all the Quarterfinals, between the host nation and the team that eliminated them from the last World Cup Australia. FIFA has chosen Carol Anne Chenard for this match, this is the second time we will see her and a second time in a Brazil fixture, after she left a very positive impression of the opening game between the hosts and China.

FIFA appoint referees for Rio 2016 Olympic women’s football Matchday 3

Ri Hyang-Ok to take charge of Germany v Canada

FIFA have decided the referees for Matchday Three at Rio 2016. Honestly it is hard to decide the best appointments due to the competition format, so one could say all the designations are important ones.

Anyhow for certain the biggest surprise is that we’ll see Olga Miranda again, and in a big match, China – Sweden. The other Group E match, between the host nation and South Africa will be led by Stephanie Frappart from France.

In Group F, FIFA has showed it’s continued support for Ri Hyang-Ok as she will take charge of Germany – Canada. Quite the opposite for Esther Staubli as the Champions League Final referee will probably have the least important match, Australia – Zimbabwe, it seems Massimo Busacca doesn’t appriciate the talents of his fellow Swiss.

Carol Anne Chenard has biggest task of leading the unofficial opening game, between Brazil – China

Appointments for officials decided for opening round of Rio 2016 group matches.

The appointments have been decided for the opening round of group matches at Rio 2016. Carol Anne Chenard has the biggest task as she leads the unofficial opening game, between Brazil – China.

Chenard is used to the big occasion in the Olympics, she lead the Great Britain – Brazil match in front of 88 000 thousand in London. Otherwise, Ri Hyang-Ok probably has the biggest other game, as the match which gave us probably the biggest shock in Canada, Colombia – France, is repeated a year on. Read the rest of this entry →

What to expect from the 12 refereeing teams at Rio 2016 Olympic Games women’s football

What to expect from the 12 refereeing teams at Rio 2016 Olympic Games women’s football

Having established the FIFA Women’s World Cup for 1991, five years later Women’s Football became an event at the Olympic Games.

Ever since USA 1999, all FIFA competition women matches have to be led by women’s referees, a decision that personally I think really improved the morale and helped to create a future generation of women’s referees.

Here at Rio 2016, women’s football is as strong as ever and the same could be said of the referees, I’ll try to give some sort of preview as what to expect from the 12 refereeing teams:

AFC

Referee: Rita Gani (MAS, 1977)

The police officer from Sabuh became an international referee in 2006 and went into AFC Asian Cup 2014 as a relative unknown on the big stage. However, after surely some performances well reputed so was appointed to lead the semi-final between South Korea – Australia. She awarded a very brave penalty to SKR, which to me looked like an incorrect decision. Anyhow she must have done quite a good job because she was selected for Canada 2015, where she led Switzerland – Ecuador. Read the rest of this entry →

UEFA Women’s Champions League final is set for a France-Germany contest…again!

UEFA Women’s Champions League final is set for a France-Germany contest…again!

As Riem Hussein blew the final whistle at the Charléty in Paris there was, of course masked by a local joy, a general disappointment about the course of events the UEFA Women’s Champions League Quarterfinals had taken this season, the same course of so many others.

All those not Franco-German had been vanquished, another final contested between Division 1 Feminine and Frauen Bundesliga was set for the outskirts of Milan in May. Just like those in Berlin, London, Munich, London (again!) and Madrid before them. Only in Lisbon, and the eventually self-destructive riches of Sweden’s Tyresö could buck the trend, Lisbon was their final hurrah (and match, before going bust), it ended in glorious defeat, 4-3, but nonetheless defeat: Germany victorious again.
