EPBF and Predator Pro Billiard Series Join Forces for Worldwide Refereeing Brilliance

The Predator Pro Billiard Series is teaming up with the European Pocket Billiard Federation (EPBF) to elevate the standard of refereeing worldwide and establish a cohesive network of top-tier tournament officials.

Throughout 2024, the EPBF and Predator Pro Billiard Series (PBS) will collaborate to enhance the quality of officiating across PBS events globally. Leveraging the EPBF’s proven methodologies from Europe, both organizations aim to equip Pro Billiard Series events worldwide with the tools for impeccable refereeing.

Existing staff and referees from the Predator Pro Billiard Series will join forces with EPBF officials to forge a global cadre of pool referees entrusted with managing PBS events. The EPBF will oversee refereeing at all Predator Pro Billiard Series events and will offer on-site training to foster a new rapport between the EPBF and officials beyond Europe.

Vincent Rochefort, Event Manager for the Predator Pro Billiard Series, expressed enthusiasm for the partnership: “We’re thrilled to embark on this collaboration with EPBF. Teaming up with EPBF Head Referee Roman Mirakhmedov and his team, we aim to elevate the standard of refereeing worldwide.”

Roman Mirakhmedov, Head Referee for the EPBF, echoed the sentiment: “We’re excited to join forces with the Predator Pro Billiard Series on this global referee training initiative. With two decades of experience in structured referee development, we believe a unified approach to refereeing will greatly benefit the sport.”

The collaboration will kick off at the 2024 Predator Pro Billiard Series at the CueSports International Expo in Las Vegas. This event, taking place from February 21 to March 5 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino, will feature five professional events with $500,000 in prize money. The series begins with the men’s and women’s Las Vegas Opens, followed by the Apex Mixed Doubles and the PBS Women’s Showdown, culminating in the 2024 Predator WPA World 10-Ball Men’s Championship.

Following the Expo, the partnership between the Predator Pro Billiard Series and EPBF will extend to all future PBS events, ensuring a consistent standard of refereeing excellence.
