WKF HEAD OFFICE work very hard in cooperation with our IRC- “International rules committee” to train our international officials and referees, to answer protests and requests for the competition rules and to develop our various WKF rules.
History has shown nothing is set in stone!
Our last World referee seminar´s 2022 in Wels, Austria 2023 in Skofije, Slovenia and in Buenos Aires, Argentina 2023 appointed several new female WKF referees with international licenses.
Today we again have 11 female officials worldwide with an international WKF referee license.
The past has shown that we need more officially WKF licensed ladies internationally.
The next but one World referee seminar will be held now in autumn 2025, the weekend just before the European Championships 2025 .
As the world knows, our WKF is celebrating 60 years of existence in the next WKF World Championships in Spain in 2024.
We expect in Spain 2024 again more than 1.500 Champions, man and women.
Today WKF has more than 120 international licensed referees on 6 continents. Like all knowledge, more and more strong female champions and athletes are fighting
Of these, unfortunately, we only have
eleven WORLD CLASS female officials
Our executive board therefore emphatically requests all WKF country presidents to send more female referees to Spain, the next seminar in November 2024.
To all our country presidents World wide:
send more female referees to the next World referee seminar in November 2024 in Spain!
It is in your hands and your own responsibility …
we just need
more female officials
in our WKF
