UEFA Europa League Final 2014 will be refereed by German Felix Brych

Germany's no.1 Felix Brych has been assigned by UEFA's Referee Committee headed by Pierluigi Collina to take charge of next Wednesday's all-Iberian UEFA Europa League Final between Sevilla FC and Benfica SL in Turin's Juventus Arena. The match is about to commence at 20:45 CET.

Based in Munich, the Dr. in financial law has become an international referee in 2007. UEFA did not need that long to discover his modern refereeing style and high quality of performances in Europe's top-class matches in Champions League and on national team level. His play-off between Ireland and France marks his international breakthrough, followed by a row of vitally important appointments including Chelsea FC's win over FC Barcelona in the Champions League semifinals or his nomination for 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil. This season, he successfully took control over matches like AC Milan - FC Barcelona, Chelsea FC against Galatasaray or, in the quarterfinals, FC Barcelona - Atlético Madrid in UEFA Champions League.

For Brych, it will be his first final ever. He never took charge of a final before, neither on national, nor on international turf. During the last three years, the 38-year old only controlled one Europa League match (in early 2012). However, he accompanied Björn Kuipers into last season's Europa League final at Amsterdam Arena where Benfica SL lost - pretty late - against Chelsea FC with 1:2.
A regular, German team will surround Brych in Turin. Serbian Milorad Mažić will complete the team being the fourth official and thus rewarded for his impressive development over the last season(s).

Viel Glück!

    4. I think it'll be either Çakır or Mažić...

    5. For me it will be Cakir, Moen or Proenca, but it's too early to predict something.
