Mars, who served as a FIFA and National Assistant Referee, and Moore who served as a referee, both went
into retirement over the January/February 2020 period.
Both match officials have officiated in matches across the Caribbean Football Union, CONCACAF and FIFA regions. Mars began his FIFA career in 2004 while Moore began his in 2013.
In an invited comment, Chairman of the Referees Committee, Executive Committee Member
