It apparantly was the first session for the new platform Referees Evolving Digitally. Lees “This is my preparation, how do you prepare??” verder

Officiating’s Cool owes a reasonable part of the exposure to the Annual Eastercup in Moabit Berlin. In 2014 both our engines met and only five months later the first edition of the clinic took place. In the following years the clinic (and the movement) developed in cooperation with our German friends, who got a big punch in the nose this year as Corona had the 2020 edition of the Eastercup cancelled.
