Lucio Arteaga, a member of the Kansas Soccer Hall of Fame and a longtime Referee, Assessor, Instructor and benefactor for the Kansas Referee Program passed away on May 2, 2015.


This is a big loss to the Kansas Referee Program, and the Kansas Adult Soccer Association.  


Lucio was instrumental in the development of Kansas Referees, providing a yearly scholarship to referees wishing to move up the ladder of success in USSF.  The State Referee Committee will fund this annual scholarship for the next year as our memorial to Lucio’s commitment to the development of Kansas Referee’s.


He will be missed by all of us in the Kansas Referee Family.


Memorial contributions can be made to the Olathe Hospice House, 15310 S. Marion St., Olathe, KS 66061
