Simon Murphy is the founder and CEO of a tech startup called RefLive.
RefLive’s Referee Management System is an online management dashboard and referee smartphone app to improve performance and retention while reducing abuse.
The last part of that sentence is pretty important.
Referee abuse is the number one reason that referees stop refereeing. A lot of us know it’s a problem. But Simon is one of the few that have decided to take that issue head-on.
During this conversation with Simon, we discuss:
- His time playing college soccer in the United States
- What led him to start a company for referees
- The day his technology was used for the first time by a FIFA referee
