|Joining this blog's "Elite Group": Pavel Královec|
World of Football Refereeing will prospectively feature an own but naturally inofficial referee category system as counterpart to UEFA's official group system classifying their officials into Elite Group, Elite Development Group, First, Second and Third Group. There will be merely small changes related to the group system itself, but significant ones concerning the officials belonging to the respective groups.
Its implementation strengthens the opinion-related part of this blog on the basis of its great community.
It must be emphasized that this system is certainly not perfect at all due to the limited opportunities one has as neutral observer being not involved in UEFA's procedures. The allocation of the officials to their groups depends on the collected impressions of the performances received and communicated by our community of this blog.
Furthermore, the referee categories will be updated every quarter year; the next update will be hence made shortly after the last matchday in UEFA's club competitions in December.
A feedback in form of comments is very much appreciated.
