Lao refs receive upgraded FIFA accreditation

Eleven Lao referees are now able to adjudge future international football matches after attending a FIFA training course at the Lao Football Federation (LFF)’s office from September 18-19.
The LFF held the training course for local referees to bring them up to speed with the latest requirements of FIFA which will now let them all control major international matches in future. 
The training course was attended by Head of the LFF Referee Division, Mr Sipaseuth Sinbandith, an experienced match official who has presided over both major national and international matches.
Lao referees are currently controlling Division 1 matches at the LFF field and were in charge of the whistle during Pepsi Lao Premier League 2019 matches across the country earlier in the year.
The latest training follows other previously FIFA sponsored initiatives to improve the abilities of local referees.
