This year, Vitaly Spasjonnikov won the FIFA Chief Judge category. Previously, there were two other Latvian arbitrators in this status – Andris Treimanis (since 2011) and Aleksandrs Anufrijevs (since 2012). Viola Raudziņa (since 2008) and Jelena Jermolajeva (since 2014) have identical qualifications for ladies.
In 2021, there are also several assistant judges in the FIFA category: Līga Didriķe, Harald Gudermanis, Jevgenijs Morozovs, Olga Prokopkins, Denis Ševčenko, Aleksejs Spasjonņikovs, Mārtiņš Svipsts, Raimonds Tatrikas, Diana Vanaga
For the first time in history, a Latvian representative has also reached the status of an international video judge – Andris Treimanis will be allowed to work in the VAR team in official international matches in the future.
FIFA also has a list of beach football and indoor football referees. Eduards Borisevičs and Jurijs Ivušins will continue to serve beach football matches, but Eduards Fatkuļins and Ingus Puriņš will take care of the observance of the rules in indoor football.
