RefPal now operating in 5 countries

As we are starting our second year of international sales we are providing video analysis and referee development platform for 5 countries. There are over 600 users, more than 1500 games analyzed, close to 20 000 incidents in our database and almost 100 000 logins during this quarter.

Spring season in Europe brought two additions with Faroe Islands and Latvia teaming up with RefPal to develop their referees. Both leagues use a mixture of Key Incidents and Learning Points analysis, with their referees becoming active participants from day one of the cooperation. We held several start-up seminars for both referees (Faroe Islands spring seminar pictured above) and observers through ZOOM and also translated the system into Russian for the Latvian refereeing community. Now RefPal is available in 4 languages: English, Russian, Arabic and Estonian.

Growth mindset in refereeing

Why do we need to change our mentality towards making mistakes? Why is the true measure of a referee the way he deals with errors and how can we at RefPal help the refereeing community to change their mindsets?

To start I will take you back to my first ever 8,5 as a referee in UEFA competitions. It happened in a 2012 Europa League qualifier in the Netherlands with a Scottish observer. We managed the game well, got lucky with some decisions, and came away winners. The observer was pleased and during the aftermatch dinner described me as a natural referee with enormous talent. God, it made me proud and my self-confidence skyrocketed. To be fair I got another 8.5 in the spring of 2013, possibly flying on the wave of self-confidence created in Twente. The next one took 5 years and arrived in 2018 - so what happened?
