Officials from FIFA's six continental confederations have been monitored and assessed at domestic, continental and international competitions, as well as through a series of practical and interactive training sessions. The officials have also been tested regularly for fitness and refereeing technique, as well as for their knowledge of English.
All of the officials will undergo one final fitness test to be held in Frankfurt approximately a week before the first match at Berlin's Olympiastadion on 26 June.
