IFAF Women’s World Championship 2022 - 4th Jun 22

The above championships will take place in Vantaa, Finland from 28th July to 8th August with teams from all over the world participating, Including Team GB.

The BAFRA Board are delighted to announce that BAFRA officials will once again play an important role at this tournament. British officials are very highly regarded on the international front in both contact and non-contact formats. It is a rare occurrence when we do not have officials selected to attend these types of events and many have also been assigned the gold medal games.

Such is our credibility within world football we have 4 of our members attending the Championships in both on and off field positions

Following a nomination and selection process carried out by IFAF, the Board would like to congratulate the following on their assignment to Officiate at the event.

  • Alisha Darkins: Back Judge
  • Susannah Taylor: Line Judge
  • Stuart Young: Umpire

In addition to the above, BAFRA President, Davie Parsons has been appointed by IFAF as the Supervisor of Officials. This is a critical role that requires good people management skills, especially in the areas of Officials performance and liaising with team representatives. Davie will be responsible for many aspects such as providing guidance and feedback to Officials, selecting crews for all games, ensuring consistency in mechanics and rules application and liaising with technical committees
