A former Premier League referee between 2013 and 2019, Roger East will join this year’s IberCup Andalucia in Spain! He will coach and offer his feedback, tips and advice to our group of referees.

During his time on the Premier League Roger refereed 90 games in at the top English level, including games at some of the world’s most famous stadiums such as Anfield or Old Trafford, as well as close to 100 matches in the Championship. He also refereed a number of games in the FA Cup, EFL Cup and many other professional matches, including play-off finals.

As it should be clear by now, Roger brings a wealth of experience to our observers team. He is also no stranger to Referee Abroad, having attended last year’s IberCup Madrid, where he coached numerous of our up-and-coming referees. Since retiring from the Premier League, Roger East has acted in a coaching capacity also for the English FA, having mentored referees on the FA Core program.

Referee Abroad is the exclusive provider of referees to all IberCup tournaments in Europe, including IberCup Spain, Cascais, Andalucia, Estoril and Barcelona. Our relationship with IberCup dates back to the first ever edition in 2010, and we now send over 300 referees annually to their events.

Welcome back, Roger. We are looking forward to meeting you once again!
