 Referees Prepared for the Games

 Early Tuesday morning the referees will start the first games at Dana Cup 2016. Almost 2900 football matches will be played and 275 referees will ensure that the games are played according to the football regulations.

At two meetings on Monday the referees were informed about how the games are to be executed. For instance as something new, penalty shootouts after regular time will take place on the pitch where the game is played. However, after preliminary rounds teams play five minutes of extra time twice before a possible shootout.

Head of the jury, Finn Larsen, underlined that the games must start on time.

'With almost 2900 games a slight delay in each game could easily upset the entire tournament schedule. Consequently, one game can as a maximum be postponed 10 minutes if a team does not turn up on time; if a team is more than 10 minutes delayed the other team will win the game,' Finn Larsen stressed.
