Supple nominated for FIFA badge

December 6, 2003

The United States Soccer Federation (USSF) has announced that Massachusetts Referee Tom Supple (Kingston) has been nominated to the 2004 FIFA list as a Grade 2 Referee (FIFA AR). Supple would join current members Rachel Woo (Auburndale) and Jenn Bennett (Boxford) on the prestigious FIFA list, upon final acceptance by soccer's governing body.

Supple, a National Referee since 1999, has been a regular in high level professional and Adult games across the US including playoffs matches for both MLS and WUSA.

Congratulations on a job well done!

Update: According to the FIFA Web Site it appears Tom has been confirmed. A "typo" on the list incorrectly lists Tom as a FIFA referee, as opposed to the correct designation of FIFA Assistant Referee. Once again, congratulations.
