Arsenal red card refs added to FIFA list

Stuart Atwell, who will take charge of Arsenal vs Leeds United on Sunday in the Premier League, has been added to the FIFA List for 2021 as a VAR official along with a number of others, the names of which will make your head hurt.

This weekend, Stuart Atwell returns to take charge of his first Arsenal match of the season although it will be his seventh involvement of the season (details below).

Atwell is clearly being trained as a VAR specialist, and this is reflected in his addition to the FIFA list as a VAR official. He is joined by Sian Massey-Ellis who also seems to be being moved more towards an assistant VAR role.

Given that’s she’s female, and been in the game longer than many of her male colleagues who have been promoted above her, you do have to wonder why she’s only deemed good enough for a support role, especially when you consider some of the main players.

In addition to those two, FIFA have also added:

Peter Bankes, Emily Carney, Neil Davies, Lee Betts, Chris Kavanagh, Craig Pawson and Paul Tierney, all officials Arsenal know well.
