Referees in radio contact

17 November 2011, 17:18

The referees for today’s encounter between Dynamo Moscow and Salavat Yulaev will make history as the first to use wireless communications. Referees Vladimir Balushka and Yuri Renn, linesmen Roman Shikhanov and Sergei Morozov, and also the video ref will be able to converse with one another during the game. The technology is to be phased in over the current season and will be available to all the officials in charge of KHL games. The technology also allows for the referees’ conversations to be broadcast to all the spectators, but for the moment this function will not be used.
