Queensland referees are continuing to reach football’s highest levels with Renae Coghill and Kate Jacewicz appointed to the upcoming FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Jordan.
The pair have been confirmed as Australia’s two representatives among a group of nine from the Asian Football Confederation.
Brisbane-based Coghill (pictured) and Gold Coast-raised Jacewicz are both FIFA-listed officials and teamed up for this year’s Westfield W-League Grand Final.
Coghill, an assistant referee, combines her national and international commitments with regular PlayStation® 4 National Premier Leagues appointments.
Jacewicz has additionally been pre-selected for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup alongside fellow Queenslander Casey Reibelt, with the pair attending an historic training camp in Doha earlier this year.
State Referees Development Officer David Wiebe congratulated the two Queenslanders on their appointment.
“Renae and Kate are both highly talented and experienced officials and thoroughly deserve this opportunity,” Wiebe said.
“They are excellent examples of the pathways that exist for Queenslanders to reach the top.
“Renae continues to train with referees of all levels in Brisbane which is great for the community. We wish her and Kate well for the tournament.”
The FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup kicks-off on 30 September and runs until 21 October.
