NRA holds seminar ahead Nigerian Leagues new season

30 January 2014, 17:12

Abuja - The Nigeria Referees Association (NRA) said it had concluded plans to hold the 2013/2014 pre-season seminar in the four zones of the country.

The NRA President, Ahmed Maude disclosed to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the seminar was to prepare the referees for their duties in the various leagues.

Maude said the seminar would hold between February 14 and 15 in the zones.

He explained that the seminar had been divided into zones because it would be difficult to assemble all the Nigerian referees at a venue due to their large number.

“The North-Western and North-Eastern states will hold their seminar in Kano, while the North-Central states will have theirs in Abuja”, Maude told NAN.

“Lagos will host the South-Western states, while the South-East and South-South states will meet in Owerri for their seminar’’.

“The essence is to keep the referees abreast of the amendments in the laws of the game and some other salient issues before the commencement of the new season.’’

According to him, this will ensure that referees taking part in the various leagues from the elite to the lowest tier will participate so as to have a hitch-free season.
