Five referees from the Region will be international again in 2023


Sánchez Martínez, Raúl Cabañero, Martínez Madrona, Martínez Flores and Ojaos Valera will whistle in European competitions next year

José María Sánchez Martínez from Lorca will remain the main banner of Murcian football in 2023, a new year in which he will once again be an international referee, a category he has held since 2017. He achieved it just two seasons after his debut in the Eerste Divisie. Sánchez Martínez and the rest of the referees of the Committee of Murcia attended a few days ago the national gala for the delivery of FIFA rosettes to the international referees for the new year 2023 in the specialties of football, futsal and beach football.

The Technical Committee of Referees of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), led by Luis Medina Cantalejo, held an event in which they played the main role, alongside Sánchez Martínez, his usual assistant Raúl Cabañero Martínez; María Dolores Martínez Madrona, F League referee; Alejandro Martínez Flores, of the Futsal First Division; and Alejandro Ojaos Valera, from beach soccer.

A total of 46 rosettes were awarded to international referees of the country of the three modalities and among the holders of the international award are the five braids from the region of Murcia, who attended an act attended by, among others, the new absolute national coach, Luis de la Fuente, and the general secretary of the RFEF, Andreu Camps.

For the first time since this event, two special prizes were awarded under the title: ‘A lifetime dedicated to arbitration’. An award received by Ladislao Velasco Martínez, who has held several positions of responsibility within the group and is Honorary President of the Las Palmas Referees Commission, and Francesc Casajuaná Rifá, who has served as Referee and President of the Catalan Commission. The referees who whistled at the World Cup in Qatar were not at the gala.
