Their insights were instrumental in advancing the proficiency of the 24 participants from all six CAFA member countries. The session was marked by robust interaction and participation, underscoring the region’s united effort to raise the standards of football officiating.

Throughout the webinar, participants engaged in a lively exchange of ideas, experiences, and best practices. This interactive format not only facilitated a deep dive into various aspects of assessing and improving referees but also fostered a collaborative environment for sharing effective officiating strategies. Such engagement is pivotal in ensuring that football across Central Asia is conducted in a fair, competitive, and spirited manner.

The positive feedback and outcomes from this event set a promising foundation for future initiatives. As CAFA continues to drive forward its mission, the association remains dedicated to fostering a culture of continuous improvement and excellence among football officials
