LFA purchases referee’s communications gadgets
The Liberia Football Association (LFA) has purchased communications gadgets for referees (four pieces of radio and earpieces) for US$1,625.
According to LFA refereeing manager Stanley Konah, the equipment will enhance communication among referees.
“Referees will no longer have to signal or call out when an infringement is committed or to make a substitution.
“It will also reduce wasting time to restart a play. A referee can be easily called by an assistant referee or fourth official to indicate a violation on the field without the spectators noticing it,” said Konah.
The equipment, which was tested during the women’s under-20 international friendlies with Morocco in December, will be used when the Orange national league resumes in January.
