PFF referees attend online course

Twenty-one referees and assistant referees, along with four referee assessors based in Luzon, who are all eligible to officiate in Philippines Football League matches, attended a 3-day online course conducted by the Philippine Football Federation.

The Referees Refresher Course, held August 8 to 10, was the first PFF technical development course to be conducted via videoconferencing. Instructors for the course were PFF Referees department head Edwin Alobin and Allan Martinez.

The refresher course provided the referees and assistant referees with the necessary knowledge in preparation for the eventual start of the PFL 2020 season.

Filipino surfer receives
international recognition

The Comité International du Fair-Play (CIFP) named Filipino surfer Roger Casugay as the recipient of the Pierre de Coubertin Act of Fair Play Award for his courageous act during the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games last year.

The 26-year-old native from San Fernando City, La Union wowed the Southeast Asian surfing committee when he gave up what was a commanding lead in his surfing race against Indonesian opponent Arip Nurdihayat and saved the latter from drowning amid the strong waves brought about by Typhoon Tisoy, which just exited the Philippine Area of Responsibility that time.

Casugay’s act of kindness garnered commendations from various people, including no less than Indonesian President Joko Widodo.
