Vancouver BC, October 31, 2014- Michelle Pye, Juan Marquez, Igor Cvetkovski and Erina Cho are leading the way for soccer referees in British Columbia.  All three referees have had incredible seasons with both Erina and Michelle refereeing international matches and Juan refereeing at national competitions.

“It is wonderful to see BC Soccer Referees doing so well at national and international levels,” said John Reed, BC Soccer Referee Committee Chair.  “The success of referees such as Michelle Pye and Juan Jose Marquez really helps show our younger referees that if they are dedicated they can make it to the national and global stage as well.”

Erina Cho had a successful year as she was invited to referee at the FIFA Women’s U15 CONCACAF Championships in the Caymen Islands.  It is an amazing honor to be invited to these championships and at only 19 years old there looks to be an incredibly bright future for Erina, one of British Columbia’s top youth referees.  Much like Erina’s year, Juan Marquez and Igor Cvetkovski also had a very successful 2014 as they refereed at the Canada Soccer Club Nationals and were assessed to be put on the Canada Soccer National Referee list for 2015.

Michelle Pye not only refereed at the U20 Women’s World Cup, including the final match,  but she also was the head referee in the international friendly match between the Canadian Women’s National team and Japan which took place on Tuesday October 28 at BC Place in Vancouver.  The match between Canada and Japan was incredibly fast paced but Michelle was up to task and had no trouble keeping up to the play which resulted in a great game for the players and the more than 14,000 spectators.

“It was a great experience to referee such a high profile match in my home town of Vancouver,” said Michelle Pye. “I’ve been working incredibly hard on my fitness and I am feeling great out on the pitch which is definitely something that is needed while refereeing this caliber of play. I am really looking forward to continuing to referee matches like these in the future.”
