Assistant Referee

The assistant referees, formerly known as linesmen, are two officials who assist the referee in making decisions.

They are mainly responsible for indicating when the ball has gone out of play, offside situations, and sometimes helping to identify fouls that may occur out of the referee’s view.

Assistant referees carry flags and use them to signal their observations to the referee.
