JBF President Mohamed Alayyan urged all referees to correct errors that may occur during the adjudicating of matches. He emphasized that the federation’s board of directors does not interfere in the referees committee’s decisions regarding referee appointments based on the committee’s rotation mechanism.

Alayyan stressed that the JBF would not succumb to any pressure, stressing that the law would be applied to everyone without exception, and without favoritism for any party.

The referees voiced their support for the JBF’s decision and stressed the committee’s independence in its selection of referees. They reiterated their impartiality with all clubs and the application of the law.

Also on Saturday, the Referees Committee, chaired by Mudar Majzoub, met to discuss some arbitration cases in the matches of the last round, within the weekly periodic sessions held by the JBF Referees Committee.

During the session, matches were reviewed and arbitration cases were discussed to unify concepts and referees were urged to not allow psychological pressure exerted by some clubs to influence decisions.
