REFEREES APPOINTED FOR ASIAN MEN’S CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP IN TEHRAN NOW OFFICIATING POOL STAGE MATCHES

Tehran, Iran, May 13, 2022 – The 2022 Asian Men’s Club Volleyball Championship is taking place in Tehran, Iran from May 14 to 20, 2022, serving as the Asian qualifying tournament from which the eventual winners will secure berth for the FIVB Men’s Club World Championship.

The eight accompanying referees have been nominated by AVC to officiate at the tournament under the guidance of Referee Delegate Mr Mohammad Shahmiri from Iran and Referee Sub-Committee Member Mr Jirachai Kasemsook from Thailand.

Having completed the theoretical phase of refereeing clinic in the morning, the referees attended the practical phase inside the court in the afternoon.

During the Referee Clinic, all referees also stood chances to work closely with the Video Challenge. All the participating teams will take the benefit of the new-technology Video Challenge System to assist the referees in the decision making process in order to make the game absolutely fair to the athletes’ actions.

According to the Video Challenge team, Challenges are allowed for one of the following situations:

a) Ball in/out – for side and end lines

b) Block Touch – contact with the ball by the player (i.e. the blocker)

c) Net Fault – contact with the net between the antennae by the player in the action of playing the ball

d) Antenna Touch – contact with the antenna by the player or by the ball

e) Foot Fault – a) contact of the server with the playing court (end line included) or the lateral free zone outside the service zone, b) faulty contact of a player with the 3-meter attack line, c) the complete crossing of the center line by the player’s foot or feet.

“Since two teams are from Iraq and two teams are from Iran, the arrangement of the referees would be difficult. For each match, we will assign four referees including first, second, reserve, and challenge referees. We will try to follow FIVB’s regulation”, Referee Delegate Mr. Mohammad Shahmiri said.

Referee List is as follows:

1. 1. Mr. Alireza Gharib, Iran1

2. Mr. Vahid Pourkasian, Iran2

3. Mr. Hisham Bakr Qadia, Iraq1

4. Mr. Mosa Salim Azeez, Iraq2
