New YATR Head of Referee Education Paul Rejer continued his month long travels with another stop in America, this time to visit Dallas for the 2018 Generation Adidas Cup.

The u17 tournament featured a whole host of MLS clubs competing with international sides from across the world including top European sides Real Madrid, Eintracht Frankfurt and Monaco, as well as some of South America’s most famous clubs such as Flamengo and River Plate.

Flamengo were the ultimate winners in the Champions Division after beating fellow Brazilian side Atletico Paranaense 1-0, whilst MLS side Seattle Sounders defeated New York Red Bulls 2-1 in the Premier Division. Both the finals and semi-finals featured VAR.

Rejer was in attendance as a Referee Coach and was on hand to give expert advice to all the match officials who took part.

The ex Training and Development Manager for PRO, the group behind the MLS referees, visited the USA at the start of the month to mentor a group of referees at the Premier Cup before heading to China to attend the Annual Pre-season Chinese National List of Referees and Assessors Seminar.
