NYON: Frenchman Clement Turpin will referee the Champions League Final between Liverpool and Real Madrid.
The match, in the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, north of Paris on 28 May, will be the 39-year-old’s first Champions League final.
He has officiated in seven Champions League matches this season, including Chelsea’s quarter-final first leg against Real Madrid in which a Karim Benzema hat-trick saw the visitors run out 3-1 winners.
Turpin was in charge of last year’s Europa League final in which Villarreal beat Manchester United on penalties.
He also has experience of refereeing fellow finalists Liverpool this season, taking charge of their 2-0 win over RB Leipzig in the last 16 second leg.
Turin brandished three red cards in the space of eight minutes after a brawl broke out in Porto’s Champions League group tie against Atletico Madrid in December.
Slovenia’s Slavko Vincic will referee the Europa League final between Rangers and Eintracht Frankfurt with Romania’s Istvan Kovas taking the Europa Conference League final between Roma and Feyenoord.
Finland’s Lina Lehtovaara will take charge of the Women’s Champions League final between Barcelona and Lyon.
