Guess The Referee: Predict Champions League Referees and Win Refereeing Equipment (Matchday 1 Results)

Guessing the referees for the next Champions League round has been a nice element in this blog for a couple of years. Why not making a game or even contest out of that?



Similar to DutchReferees' Laws of the Game quiz, our partners from Refsworld UK are offering you some goodies from their store. All you have to do to win some useful refereeing equipment for your own games is making predictions at a more or less regular basis. If you are not interested in winning refereeing equipment, no problem - then you can simply fill the forms out and compete with the others at your pleasure.

The "Guess The Referee" games will be posted regularly from now on. The forms will be always open from Monday 10:00 CET to Wednesday 20:45 CET a week before the Champions League matches are kicked off.

For those who had less success at Matchday 1, don't give up: Next time, we are going to provide you with the referee observers before asking for your predictions. And: Next time, there is a new chance. The participant with the highest amount of points collected during the entire season additionally wins an extra, bigger prize at the end of the season.

Please note: Some participants' votes were invalid for various reasons (missing predictions or too late participation). Later on a file will be uploaded with the concrete predictions.

    1. As the google template worked for many other users, I guess either you tried to enter names in the wrong fields or it is a problem related to your PC / browser. So I fear you'll face similar problems next time. If that's the case, simply forward your names via mail.

  4. Congratulations to K.S. on an emphatic performance... 😃 Looks like he is Collina's hairdresser and gets all information from him... 😂 And rest of us who haven't yet opened our account, hopefully we will do better the next time round... 😇

  7. OT : Kassai crucial mistake confirmed by UEFA today. PSG appeal has been accepted by UEFA disciplinary body which has cancelled verratti card to give It to Marquinhos. So mistake by fourth official and kassai

  8. OT: As a result of Fredy Fautrel's retirement, 27 year old François Letexier, who only made his first Ligue 1 game in January 2016, will complete the French FIFA list.
    Furthermore, according to "Arbitrez-vous", the goal of the French refereeing department is to get Ruddy Buquet into the Elite group as of January.

    1. True K.S. and Letexier will be a very promising ref.

      Delete
    2. I cannot imagine a promotion of Buquet already in January. There are some other first group referees ahead, I think.

      Delete
    3. Politics are powerful as we all know, but I agree with Gitzlo. He only got UEL last matchday, so he will very likely referee 1-2 CL matches only. That can't be enough, actually. I think he is a candidate for 2017/18.

      Kulbakov, Taylor and Zwayer are ahead, in my view. However, Buquet is (already) 39 - same goes for Martin Strömbergsson. So if UEFA has plans with him/them, they should not wait too long either.

    4. Well, François Letexier looks even younger.
      Very brave decision from refereeing department.
