The headings for the TFF Advisor David Elleray’s report are:

1-There are widespread years of dissatisfaction with referees, referee systems, and those who have trained referees in terms of reliability, competence, and stability.

2-Changes made to those who permanently take over the referee’s leadership lead to a contradiction in the direction they should follow. Because of this, there is a greater lack of trust in the eyes of referees, soccer players, coaches, clubs and members of the media.

3-The refereeing system is not trusted and is perceived as lacking in transparency. This distrust is exacerbated by the perception that the “personal” impact is too great.

4-The referee feels unsupported, low wage and unrespected. “Big” clubs in particular are afraid to make mistakes while managing a match and are often advocated as “scapegoats”.

5-The basis of all refereeing issues should be clearly linked to four key topics: competence, stability, communication and trust.

6-Strict measures must be taken to ensure the honesty and integrity of the arbitration issue. This process requires an “independent” view and monitoring.

7-All aspects of arbitration. Performance evaluations, appointments, and classification changes need to be more objective, data-based, and independent, especially in professional football.

11-A comprehensive strategy is needed to identify and nurture young and talented referees for the future.

12-Strict measures must be taken against those who inappropriately criticize the referee, especially if the arbitrator’s integrity is questioned.

13-It is necessary to establish relationships with universities in various disciplines in order to create opportunities for academic qualifications in teaching methods, performance evaluation, and potentially sports management.

14-The quality of the referee has a direct impact on the “value” of the league. Therefore, it is in everyone’s interest to create a robust and reliable system that enhances capacity, stability, and reliability.

15. Fundamental changes in referee structure and leadership are needed to make real progress. However, whatever strategy you adopt, it must be supported and respected by all football stakeholders.

16-Decisions made; to adapt the existing arbitration system or to establish a new, modern, objective and more independent system with TFF authority.

17-This structure is a unique opportunity to make realistic and sustainable progress at all levels of arbitration. Target; Turkish referees are “best in class” and ultimately an international model and the center of outstanding referees.
