Capital Football have announced a partnership with sports technology company RefLIVE.
The partnership will assist the state’s referees in monitoring performance and tracking team behaviour.
Capital Football will implement RefLIVE’s Referee Management System, which is a data-gathering platform that tracks referee wellbeing via an app.
The Referee Management System is popular with various state and national sports associations around the world, with a focus on understanding how to improve environments for referees and increasing their ongoing participation in the sport.
Capital Football CEO Phil Brown explained the program has been used across the state’s competitions since July 18, with referees reacting positively to the introduction of the service.
“Capital Football is always looking for ways to support referees and RefLIVE’s technology helps us do that by using practical data,” Mr Brown said.
“This is a great initiative as referees will be able to file reports on team and crowd behaviour, contribute individual assessments and identify potential areas for personal development.
“We hope to gain a deeper understanding of the situations our match officials face as we look to create a better overall experience for our football community,” he concluded.
RefLIVE CEO Simon Murphy claimed it was great to work with Capital Football and provide them with a valuable refereeing resource.
“This is an excellent opportunity to work with a range of referees who will receive additional support and guidance on our online platform,” Mr Murphy said.
“Our Referee Management System will enable referees to build their confidence and skills and enable leagues to constantly monitor team behaviour to improve referee safety.”
