The Polish referee Szymon Marciniak has been appointed to officiate the UEFA Champions League final between Manchester City and Inter Milan.
Pole to referee the World Cup final
For the first time ever, a Pole will take charge of the most important match in world football. Szymon Marciniak will referee the World Cup final…
It will be the crowning of a great season for Marciniak who has been advancing through the levels of the professional hierarchy for years. In December he was chosen to referee the World Cup final, in which Argentina defeated France on penalties.
In 2023, an injury meant a temporary stop for Marciniak but he quickly returned to refereeing and received stellar reviews including the most recent for the Champions League semi-final between Manchester City and Real Madrid. Commentators claimed Marciniak was in shape and ready to take on an even more significant challenge.
