FIFA Referee Ekaterina Koroleva (USA) will attend the Seminar from February 12 to 16 as one of 35 female candidate referees for the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France. Seminar attendees will take part in practical on-field sessions, theoretical sessions which include topical discussions and video tests, as well as medical evaluations and fitness testing.
Koroleva is one of six CONCACAF referees selected for the pre-Women’s World Cup seminar alongside representatives from Costa Rica, Canada, Honduras and Mexico. A few weeks later, Koroleva will head to Portugal to lead a U.S. group of referees at the prestigious Algarve Cup from February 28 to March 7. Assistant referees Felisha Mariscal and Deleana Quan will serve on her crew at the tournament.
