PGMOL has been the topic of discussion in a lot of football matches – but not for the right reasons.
The PGMOL have been forced to come out on a number of occasions and admit to any wrongdoing during a football match.
And fans have been left with a bitter taste in their mouth.
What is the PGMOL?
The PGMOL is the English professional body that represents refereeing games.
It is abbreviated for Professional Game Match Officials Limited but it was previously called the PGMOB (Professional Game Match Official Board).
PGMOL was first introduced in 2001 when English referees became professional and it is in charge of overseeing all matches in the English football leagues including the Premier League.
The PGMOL is also responsible for any FA Associaton match or competition such as the FA Cup or the FA Community Shield.
Iconic referee Howard Webb is the PGMOL Chief Refereeing Officer and he has been part of the PGMOB following his retirement in 2014.
Why did the PGMOL have to apologise to Liverpool?
The PGMOL have released a grovelling apology after admitting they made an error during Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Liverpool.
With the score still 0-0, Liverpool star Luis Diaz was played through in the 34th minute before grabbing a goal, only for it to be ruled out as offside.
However, closer inspection of the incident showed the 26-year-old was actually being played onside by Cristian Romero.
And it ended up being costly with Liverpool going on to lose the game 2-1 following a last-minute Joel Matip own goal.
PGMOL have now admitted a “significant” mistake was made by VAR after they failed to draw the lines to check the offside.
What was said?
The statement read: “PGMOL acknowledge a significant human error occurred during the first half of Tottenham Hotspur Liverpool.
“The goal by Luis Diaz was disallowed for offside by the on-field team of match officials.
“This was a clear and obvious factual error and should have resulted in the goal being awarded through VAR intervention, however, the VAR failed to intervene.
“PGMOL will conduct a full review into the circumstances which led to the error.
“PGMOL will immediately be contacting Liverpool at the conclusion of the fixture to acknowledge the error.”
