Four persons who were selected to be part of the 2013 list of FIFA Officials were presented with their uniforms and badges on Monday January 21st.

The four were from an initial group of 6 that were nominated.

The men are Mr. Carlisle Jno. Baptiste and Mr. Daniel Leslie who are Referees, and Mr. Nehron Williams and Mr. John Durand who are Assistant Referees.

They have been in that position before and President of the Dominica Football Association, Mr. Glen Ettienne, expects them to make the association and Dominicans in general, proud.

The President says it is also an opportunity for the younger referees to continue their hard work in aspiring to be on that list.

The Association has been having a good collaboration with the referees this season and they are hoping that it continues.

The Premiere league is in full gear and the association expects to revamp their Windward Tournament that has been dormant for the past ten years.

They are hoping to begin in April and the 1st leg will most likely be in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

According to the President, another aspect that they are planning to implement is the senior teams.

Due to a shortage of medical representation, they are also looking to appeal to FIFA to have a medical course underway, where at least the premiere team can have an established first aid personnel.
