A Referee’s Perspective

11th February 2015

One game, 90 minutes, 12k run, over 2000 decisions made, 30,000+ spectators and millions of TV viewers watching your every move.
The University of Bath next Wednesday (18th February) welcomes top football referee Lee Probert when he gives a lecture entitled 
“The demands of a modern day referee and why angles are so important”.
The lecture is part of the University’s spring GULP public lecture programme and take place on the main University campus at Claverton Down and run from 5.15pm to 6.30pm in lecture theatre 5W 2.3. Entry is free.
In this lecture Lee Probert discusses how as a football referee you are your own manager and how important an ambassador you are to the sport.
He will discuss the fitness levels and training loads that are required in order to be in the best position on the field of play to make a credible decision.
Probert will explain how getting the right viewing angle makes the decision-making process a lot clearer, as any angle can create a different outcome.
Video clips will be used to see how easy refereeing is...or not.
