School teacher  Ravinesh Kumar will fly Fiji’s flag at the 2012 FIFA Club World Cup which will take place in Japan from December 6-16.

This will be Kumar’s and Fiji’s second consecutive appearance officiating at the Club World Cup after participating in the 2011 edition.

New Zealand duo Peter O’Leary and assistant referee Jan-Hendrick Hintz will be other two representatives from the Oceania Football Confederation alongside Kumar.

The upcoming involvement of O’Leary, Hintz and Kumar in Japan 2012 Club World Cup is the latest positive result of OFC’s Refereeing Assistance Programme.

The selected match officials will preside over eight games in the seven-team tournament, which will see the champions of each confederation fight it out to be crowned the best club side on the planet.

Auckland City of New Zealand will carry Oceania’s hope at the FIFA Club World Cup.
