Referee Peter Prendergast out of 2006 FIFA World Cup™

29 May 2006

Jamaican referee Peter Prendergast and his two assistants, Anthony Garwood (Jamaica) and Joseph Taylor (Trinidad and Tobago), will soon be leaving the referees’ 2006 FIFA World Cup™ headquarters, the Kempinski Hotel Gravenbruch in Frankfurt/Neu-Isenburg, and heading home due to a knee injury sustained by Prendergast. In-depth medical examinations have confirmed that the Jamaican will not be able to take charge of any matches during the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

On 31 May, the 21 referees and 42 assistant referees who will be in action in Germany will be joined by the support and development group (five referees and ten assistant referees) for a final fitness test, which will be conducted in Frankfurt/Neu-Isenburg.
