Eric Adjeyi told www.aclsports.com that they will have to successfully pass the examinations brought forward by the federation before they can officiate.
He said the test put forward by the federation is healthy for both referees and the Handball Federation f Nigeria.
Adjeyi said, “My colleague and I have been given strict instructions on what to expect before we go into the league. It is not an automatic walk in as a referee into the league in Nigeria.
“We have to go through the shuttle run, do the Cooper Test, write our examinations and if we are able to come out successfully that is when we will be allowed to officiate in the Nigeria league. It is actually good and healthy for the referees and Nigeria who is playing active league at the moment. The exams will be done on Friday”.
The Ghanaian said the 2018 Prudent Energy Handball League was interesting adding that it was his first time experiencing intense games day in day out.
Adjeyi said the most exciting match he officiated last season was between Plateau Peacocks and Safety Babes.
He said, “For me, every game was like a final match in the Prudent Energy League. It was quite an interesting league and that was my first time of experiencing intense games day in day out; there was no difference from the first day to the last day.
There was only slowing down of pace due to body pain, injuries especially from day five to the end of the league; every match was tough. The match I enjoyed must was the game between Plateau Peacocks and Safety Babes in the women’s category; that was a very enjoyable match; the speed, strength, outsmarting and everything was interesting for me and my colleague”.
