UEFA Referee Development Programme 2012 Practical Information for Match Officials
The team sheets (match sheets) still need to be completed by hand by the team administrators. These should be handed to the referee at least 75 minutes before kick-off, depending on the competition. Please take careful note of the procedure for replacing injured players after the team sheet has been handed in as this may vary depending on the competition. Details of the procedures can be found in the Appendix of this booklet. The team sheets must be faxed to UEFA and referees may give them to the Delegate who can send them with other documents he needs to fax to UEFA.
UCL & UEL from play-off round
Procedure for the referees’ training sessions on MD-1 The referee team interested in training at the venue on UEFA Club Competitions matches from Group Stages where there is a Venue Director (VD) should contact the Referee Liaison Officer (RLO) on MD-2 to confirm that the training session will take place. The VD will contact the RLO to offer some slots of time (the session must fit it with those of the clubs) that the referee will have to accept. If the time is not convenient, please ask the RLO on-site if an alternative venue is available. Remember to wear only the Competition’s kit provided or any other adidas kit without sponsor logos for such training sessions.
The refereeing team will be represented by the 4th official or the senior AAR at the match day organisational meeting. All other competitions The main referee attends the match day organisational meeting, as often the venue is new and there is no Venue Director and therefore the organisation is normally as well organised in UCL / UEL group stage.
Travel arrangements Single matches
UEFA Administration arranges the international travel for all neutral referees, assistant referees, additional assistant referees and fourth officials appointed for any UEFA match. Travel arrangements are negotiated directly between the referee’s national association and the UEFA travel agent Carlson Wagonlit. However, for “confidential” matches i.e. UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and EURO qualifying matches, where the names of the referees are not made public until two days before the match, all travel is arranged directly by email with the main referee.
