Engin keeps on making good calls

Engin keeps on making good calls Image

During lunchbreaks, city workers head to Flagstaff Gardens and our local Docklands Sports Courts to play ball with Active Melbourne City Sports.

With over 140 teams across seven sports, the need for quality referees is a must for the overall enjoyment and safety of players.

This is where Engin Aksac comes in.

Engin is one of Active Melbourne City Sports’ soccer referees. He’s been refereeing games for 28 years and a part of Active Melbourne City Sports since 2011.

Engin was recently awarded a silver medallion from Football Federation Victoria (FFV) in recognition of his 28 years as a Victorian referee.

He recently accepted the award in front of 200 fellow referees at the Annual Referee Meeting.

As a retired teacher, Engin said: “I really enjoy teaching how the game is played and ensuring correct and fair decisions are made for players so everyone can get maximum enjoyment from the game.”

Specifically, he likes his work with Active Melbourne City Sports as “it gives those who sit down all day, an opportunity to get physically active with the sport they enjoy. Those men and women can have fun and be physically active for 30 minutes.”

If you participate in Active Melbourne City Sports, be sure to congratulate Engin on nearly three decades of helping Melbourne stay active.
