St. Kitts and Nevis created history with the confirmation of 11 football match officials from the Federation as FIFA match officials. This is the first time so many match officials from St. Kitts and Nevis have been chosen as FIFA match officials—a feat unmatched anywhere else in the Caribbean or Central America. Head of the SKNFA Referees Department Malcolm Ramsey, highlighted the importance of this moment.
“It is a big deal. Really a big deal,” Ramsey said. “This is one of the things that I can say I am really satisfied with. The only thing that can exceed this is when one of our match officials gets to the World Cup one of these days and that is something I think is going to happen in the not-too-distant future,” he concluded.
The match officials are: Kimbell Ward, Tristley Bassue, Trevester Richards, Shandor Wilkinson, Reginald Gumbs, Sanchez Bass and assistant referees: Graeme Browne, Mario Parry, Tyra Wilkinson, Lenroy Parris an Jaden Rouse.
