Referees required for European Under 18’s and Under 21’s Championships in Belgium

On Behalf of the EASB, IBSF and the Belgian Billiards & Snooker Association I am delighted to inform you that the 2016 IBSF U18 & U21 Snooker Championships will take place from the 16th to the 25th of August 2016 at the Centre Park in MOL (Belgium).

A total of 15 international referees from outside Belgium will be selected for this event and the number of referees allocated for each IBSF Region is dispatched as follows:

Asia:                5 Referees

America:         1 Referee

Europe:           5 Referees

Oceania:         2 Referees


Those numbers are just a reference, should we have more referees interested to travel then, I will advise the IBSF accordingly.

To volunteer for this event you MUST be a member of the EASB and a current EBSA subscription.


The IBSF Championship conditions state that all referees will be provided free accommodation on twin-sharing basis + 1 extra meal per day for the duration of the championship. In addition, I am delighted to inform you that the IBSF will offer the amount of $200 USD to each International referee travelling from outside of Belgium to officiate in the event.


The Referees meeting will take place at the Centre Park (MOL) at 09.30 on the 16th August 2016.

Matches will start on the 16th August at 12.00 noon and the Final and closing ceremony will be on the 25th August 2016.
