Testimonials

It’s good to know that I can count on Matt for any questions answered. Ever since the first year when so many things can be confusing and hard to understand, Matt has made himself available via phone call, text or email.

When I have worked soccer tournaments for him, I notice he is very organized and focused. Whenever I referee for other soccer tournaments not set-up by him and his team, the lack of organization or communication shows.

He’s flexible, understanding and quick to resolve any last minute problems that may arise.

Matt is an extremely detail oriented and organized assignor.  He always has schedules out well in advance of work days and he is very flexible and understanding if conflicts arise… On top of that he has instituted a great mentorship program at all of his assigning jobs which helps to better the quality of the referees that work for him.  I would gladly work for Matt any day.

Kyle BurkhardtReferee

Matt’s attention to detail and quality of work has been outstanding.  He is thorough and follows up in a timely manner to everyone involved.  Because of his consistent level of delivery, we have an extremely high level of trust that our program will always be served at the highest possible level.

I had the opportunity to work with Matt during the 2010 MYSA State Tournament.  He is a true professional with excellent communication skills.  The tournament was conducted at three separate sites, each with several sets of fields, encompassing hundreds of referees, dozens of volunteers, and a rain event that wiped out an entire day of games.  Matt’s ability to remain flexible and still provide every game with a set of quality officials displays his dedication and leadership.

Matt Tiano is a fair and thoughtful assignor that I recommend highly.

Victor de MeirelesReferee

I have had the pleasure of working with Matt as he stepped into the referee assignor role for our club on very short notice.  His experience and expertise have proven to be of great benefit as he hit the ground running; handling our requests and subsequent reschedules with a personal attention that is exceptional and quite rare these days.  And as a result of that attention, our club consistently has quality officials game after game.

I recommend Matt with the highest confidence.

Matt is a very reliable resource for assigning our referees.  He handles routine assignments up to complex tournament assignments with a high level of professionalism and integrity.
