The 2023 Korean football division 1-4 referee entry has been finalized.
The Korea Football Association (KFA) announced on the 18th the list of referees to be active in the 2023 season professional football K1 and K2 and amateur adult leagues K3 and K4 leagues. This list was confirmed by the association refereeing committee based on the individual rating rankings in 2022 and the results of the physical fitness test conducted earlier this year.
The total number of referees who will be active in K League 1, K League 2, K3 League, and K4 League this year is 135. There are 15 referees in K League 1, 17 in K League 2, and a total of 39 in K3 and K4. There are 15 assistant referees in K League 1, 14 in K League 2, and 35 in K3 and K4.
In addition, among the referees who did not work as field referees in professional games, there are 10 VMO (Video Match Official) referees who are put in to review K-League 1 and K-League 2 videos.
Until last year, the K3 and K4 league referees were operated separately, but this year, it was decided to integrate them and assign them. The Korea Football Association explained, “It is to enhance the ability of referees through competition and expand the range of referee selection.”
Accordingly, even if they are assigned to a K4 League game, if they prove their excellent ability, they will be put into the K3 League game in the next game. Conversely, if a team is assigned to a K3 game and lacks capacity, it is assigned to the K4 league for the next game. 헤라카지노
Also, starting this year, we plan to operate a professional preliminary referee system composed of young referees with potential for development among amateur league referees. This year, the first year, 10 people (6 chief referees and 4 assistant referees) were selected. As they are usually put into the K3 and K4 leagues, they will take VAR training and other preparations to be promoted to professional league referees in the future.
In accordance with the recommendation of FIFA (International Football Federation), which allows excellent female referees to compete in men’s games, four female referees who have passed the physical fitness test will be specially put into each league.
