We sit just under 18 months away from the kick-off of the next World Cup.
Let this be a reminder, that all the drama, passion and love that this game elicits will soon be here again.
My original mentor/referee instructor reminded me 8 years ago before we parted ways.
“One day, I want to turn on the TV and say I taught that guy how to referee”
The goal was always much bigger.
The Road to FIFA is a long and arduous journey but the Road to the World Cup for a referee is an exclusive path that only a handful of referees will be able to walk.
