Complete statement by SAFA

For the first time in South Africa, the internationally acclaimed referee Victor Gomes has been invited to the Saudi Pro League, commonly known as the MBS League.

The award-winning referees have crossed the world and become the face of South African referees around the world. Gomez said in his own words that his recent invitation to the Middle East really humbled him and looked forward to the challenge as usual.

The Saudi Arabian Football Federation regularly invites major referees from around the world to preside over some of the major matches in the MBS League and Kings Cup. They usually invite officials recommended by continental agencies and make Gomez among the elite referees.

Over the years, South Africa has become a major continental and global nation, and most SAFA matchmakers are encouraged to appear on major global exhibits.

Gomez will process the MBS League match on November 26, 2021.
