While not fielding any clubs in the UEFA Champions League Final this year, England will still have representation at Europe’s biggest club title race with Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg officiating the event.
According to the Metro, Clattenburg has been named the referee for the 2016 Champions League Final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in a rematch of the 2014 Final. Among Clattenburg’s biggest games officiated in his career are the 2012 Football League Cup Final between Liverpool and Cardiff City, and the 2012 Olympic Final between Mexico and Brazil.
The 41-year-old Clattenburg is also going to be the official for the FA Cup Final between Manchester United and Everton. He will also be one of the referees for the UEFA Euro 2016.
Clattenburg became a Premier League referee in 2004 and was internationally listed in 2006.
As for the Europa League Final between Liverpool and Sevilla, Swedish official Jonas Eriksson will be the man in charge of that clash.
