The AFC Match Commissioner Seminar 2017 kicked off in the Malaysian capital on Tuesday, reports the-AFC.com.
The three-day seminar aimed to prepare Match Commissioners for competitions in the next season and covered a variety of topics such as administration, technical operations, Match Commissioners’ reporting and case studies, media and more.
During an opening ceremony, AFC Competitions Director Shin Man-gil welcomed the participants to the seminar and hoped the AFC and Match Commissioners will work together to make 2017 an even more successful year.
“As you know, the AFC adopted a new vision and mission at the start of this year,” he said. “A key objective in our strategy is to ensure Asian teams succeed on the world stage. This would not be possible without organising top-level competitions in order to raise the standards across the continent. You, AFC Match Commissioners, are in an important role in this.
“The 2016 season has been a busy one but we have made good progress towards our long-term goals. The AFC’s competitions have grown in stature and now there aren’t many continental football competitions that can match our flagship events.
“The AFC competitions, and you all helping to deliver them, are in a key role in reaching our common targets. The workshop here will provide you with the latest updates and tools for the coming season, and by working seamlessly together we will make the 2017 season even more remarkable than 2016.”
