Amman: A two-day Match Commissioners’ Workshop was held recently in the capital city of Jordan under the AFC League Development Programme.

The workshop aimed to identify individuals who potentially can represent the Member Association at local league and cup matches as Match Commissioners.

The workshop was attended by 40 Jordan Football Association (JFA) staff-members, former players and referees, security officers and other potential Match Commissioners.

Mansour Obaidullah, JFA Executive Board member, said the association is working hard to develop the game at all bases and that the workshop will help the JFA to identify qualified Match Commissioners and improve match operations and event management for local competitions.

He also thanked the AFC for organising such a workshop and for their effort to develop football in Asia.

AFC Development Officer Essam Al Suhibani ​encouraged further development of the JFA’s plans and directions by conducting a series of pre-season workshops aiming to improve the Jordanian league and competitions. He also congratulated the JFA on hosting the ongoing FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup. 

The workshop covered various topics related to matchdays and key elements in match operations. It also included case studies and best practices, with the roles and functions of the Match Commissioners also explained.

The participants were then tested on what they had learned during the workshop.

Match Commissioners Rashid Al Dosari of Qatar and Kemel Tokabaev from Kyrgyzstan were the instructors of the workshop.
