Iranian trio appointed for 2019 AFC Asian Cup

TEHRAN – Three Iranian officials have been appointed to the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019, which is scheduled to kick-off in one month’s time on January 5, 2019.

Alireza Faghani and assistant referees Reza Sokhandan and Mohammadreza Mansouri, who refereed England's World Cup third-place play-off against Belgium, have been assigned to officiate in the competition.

With the expansion of Asia’s most prestigious tournament from 16 to 24 teams, a record 60 match officials – comprising 30 referees and assistant referees each – have been appointed to the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019.

The largest-ever contingent, which will also be supported by four reserve officials, will see a diverse range of nationalities, with 19 Member Associations represented across the five AFC zones.

The Continent’s best referees and assistant referees were selected based on their skill, technical knowledge, management competence and physical fitness.

They will be expected to perform various roles including Additional Assistant Referees, Reserve Assistant Referees as well as Video Assistant Referees (VAR), which will come into force from the quarter-final stage.
