Walton: We're off

March 6, 2013

The 2013 campaign started on Saturday and PRO General Manager Peter Walton has declared himself satisfied with the first weekend's work for his new team.

Walton explained to "It doesn’t seem three months since that epic MLS Cup Final in LA, but here we are at the start of another season.

"Saturday saw the kick-off to the 18th MLS season, the first for the Professional Referee Organization. After a busy pre-season it was so important that we, the officials, got off to a good start; and from what I saw and what others have said, we did just that.

"As part of the training and educational program, PRO will be introducing “plays of the week”, where we identify good officiating practice. I hope you find it of benefit."
