Born in Romania, Carmil Amarica started as a player for Victoria Constanta. When he moved to Canada in 1952 he reached the final of the Canadian National Challenge Cup with Hakoah Montreal in 1953. He became a referee and held a FIFA badge from 1970 till the end of 1976.
Amarica was an officer in World War II and after Romania was taken over by Germany he was sent there. Lucky for him his bio mentions more football than fighting. At the end of the war he was a prisoner of war, was liberated, studied to become a civil engineer and married. When he couldn't find a job he decided to move to Canada in 1952 where he again ended up in a camp. Football helped him getting out. He stopped playing because he had no insurance.
After his retirement he was a member of the CONCACAF referee commission.
