After being trained and quickly familiarized with VOKKERO ELITE, the referees are now using it for important matches, and would like to have it for all future matches.
“A big thank you to VOGO and its partner DTECH, who provided us with a complete set of professional refereeing equipment of the highest standard, making our job much easier. Previously, in windy conditions, bad weather or full stands, it was difficult to hear the voice of the main referee. We received two sets which we use during international and Big 10 matches held in Georgia. I hope that the cooperation will continue and have this equipment for all our matches in the future”.
