New guidelines for Europe's referees

The EHF’s Technical Refereeing Committee (TRC) has released its new guidelines for referees, valid for 2018.

A selection of 70 video clips taken from the VELUX EHF Champions League and the Women's EHF Champions League offers referees and national federations a valuable resource.

The focus of the guidelines is on seven key areas: 7m penalty decisions, progressive punishment, offensive fouls, special situations, new rules, pivot play and wing play.

Comments and inputs from the EHF's referee experts have been added to each clip to help understand what the correct decision in each case should be.

The guidelines can be accessed via a specially prepared video platform.

Each clip shows a single punishable action in real time as well as in slow motion. The platform offers the possibility to halt the clip by hitting 'space' and then to continue it frame by frame, using the arrow keys. Pressing 'space' again continues the clip at normal speed.
