Refresh delivers for Breaking Barriers in the Community
The Refresh Sports team were delighted to take PGMOL into the community for their latest in-person ‘Breaking Barriers’ session, delivering an interactive event at Valley Parade, the home of Bradford City FC.
The session was the 22nd that Refresh have delivered since the inception of the Breaking Barriers series in 2021 and focused on engaging, inspiring and listening to people from under-represented communities.
The evening included a panel discussion with trailblazing former officials Jarnail Singh and Mo Matadar, our EDI Manager Arran Williams, grassroots referee Kully Sidhu and The FA’s Refereeing EDI Delivery Manager Raj Randhawa, who then all took part in a Q&A with the audience.
Attendees also had the opportunity to step into the role of a Video Assistant Referee and chat with current and former match officials from the professional game.
PGMOL’s Breaking Barriers series provides a unique and inclusive platform for match officials and personnel within football to share their stories and guidance about important topics within the game and wider society.
