Premier League Referees
Now We’ll All Know How Stressful It Is To Be A Premier League Referee
For a number of years, all Premier League referees have been wearing Polar sports computers during matches – so now we can all know what happens to a ref’s heart rate at those “heart stopping” penalty decision moments – and just how fit ref’s are compared to players.
Polar’s ongoing arrangement with the Referees’ Association to supply all Premier League referees with heart rate monitors for training and matches has formalised what was an already widespread use of Polar by Premier League ref’s and indeed Premier League players.
In fact, most of the Premier League teams, as well as the majority of Championship and Football League Clubs, use Polar training computers for heart rate, fitness and health monitoring to help players achieve optimum fitness and performance.
