United World Wrestling Referee and Development departments have created an online game for wrestling fans who want to test their knowledge on rules and scoring.
The game consists of 20 action sequences taken from UWW match footage and asks the fans to score as though they were the referee. For fans, it’s a chance to see the sport from the perspective of those who have to call the action in real-time, and for referees its a powerful learning tool. For both its a chance to compete, as the game logs the scores of players in real-time and places their effort against that of all other participants.
“We want to engage with our Wrestling family worldwide during this crisis in a fun and instructive activity,” said United World Wrestling president Nenad Lalovic. “These are basic questions, but there are some tricks in there, too.”
The game is open to the first 1000 participants. New game boards will be created bi-weekly, which you can find on the United World Wrestling website and on our social media channels.
“UWW #1 – Scoring Situations” on Kahoot, is an online-refereeing simulation, the first of its kind for the sport.
