Young and promising

2011-09-30

Thorvaldur Arnason is one of Iceland's most promising referees. He has now been rewarded for his hard work with an entry to the FIFA international referees list. He is a UEFA category 3 referee.

Fast and steady climb
Thorvaldur Arnason is only the second Icelandic referee to enter the FIFA international referees list at the age of 27 (when appointed), the other one is Kristinn Jakobsson.
This shows how promising mr. Arnason is as a referee and the expectations left for him to fulfill in his international career. Mr. Arnason has climbed up the list of national referees in Iceland with a steady pace, bringing him to the top devision in the summer of 2008, at the age of 26. We will hopefully see him perform well in his career.
