It promises to be business as usual for the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) this weekend as JFF referee’s department manager Victor Stewart has confirmed the officials will be available for the fixtures.

Only one of the six games scheduled for the RSPL’s round of 18 matches were played as the unavailability of officials led to the postponement of other fixtures planned.

Stewart pointed to injuries of some match officials as a contributing factor to the personnel shortage.  He also mentioned the fact that referees had not been paid in two months and disrespect of officials buy club administrators as other major causes for concern. Stewart was confident this weekend, however, that the officials would return to the pitches as the body would be able to field second-tier officials.

“Those referees that are in the second tier will be available once we give them adequate notice and they are on standby,” Stewart told the SportsMax Zone.

“We will give them adequate notice and should be sending out the appointments for Sunday’s round of games,” he added.
