Refs start PET tests



The Physical Endurance Test [PET] for the Kenyan referees set to officiate in the upcoming 2013 Kenyan Premier League [KPL] and Division One League season kicked off on Monday morning at Nyayo National Stadium.

The event, organised by Football Kenya Federation [FKF], the country’s football governing body, will be conducted by FIFA and CAF instructors.

Over 50 top referees and match commissioners are expected to attend the one week exercise.

According to a press release signed by the Federation’s Secretary General Michael Esakwa, the whistle-blowers will learn the new Fifa rules.

“As the new Tusker Premier League season nears, it’s time for the match officials to undergo the mandatory Physical Endurance Test as well as a fitness test,” said Esakwa.

“The seminar, which will be conducted by Fifa/Caf referees instructors, will see the referees learn the new laws of the game circulated by Fifa. We need to impart knowledge to our referees to ensure that they are at par with the rest in the world.

“The League has become very competitive and the demand for competence by the clubs participating is also high.” The official also heaped praise on Afcon duo Sylvester Kirwa and Aden Marwa for their excellent job in the just concluded continental showpiece.
