Prospective List of FIFA World Cup 2018 Referees (UEFA zone)
Please find the current list of prospective match officials pre-selected by FIFA to take charge of games at World Cup 2018 in Russia. Assistant referees are included. Among others, Italy's World Cup 2014 Final Referee Nicola Rizzoli has been removed from the list - as far as we have heard, there has been some form of opposition inside FIFA against a World Cup referee who would be 47 years old in 2018.
