Nov 09, 2015
Eight Jordanian referees have been promoted to the top tier of Asian football, meaning they can officiate at matches across the continent.
The Jordan Football Association’s Director of Referees, Salem Mahmoud, said that three referees – Mohammed Abu Blame, Adham Mekhadma and Ahmed Faisal – and five assistant referees - Ahmed Moness, Issa Amawi, Youssef Idris, Faisal Showeer and Mohammed Bakar have all been promoted to the Asian Football Confederation ranks.
Mahmoud said that two more referees could be joining them if they pass upcoming fitness tests, while another will be observed in the coming months and could also make the grade.
