Damir Skomina Named Referee for 2019 UCL Final

Slovenia’s Damir Skomina will referee the all-English Champions League final between Tottenham and Liverpool at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, Madrid on the 1st of June, 2019.

He will be assisted by his fellow Slovenians, Jure Praprotnik and Robert Vukan

The fourth official will be Antonio Mateu Lahoz from Spain.

The 42-year-old awarded Manchester United a controversial late penalty in their last-16 victory over Paris St-Germain in March.

Skomina was in charge when United beat Ajax in the 2017 Europa League final as well as the Uefa Super Cup match between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid five years earlier.

The video assistant referee role has been assigned to Danny Makkelie from the Netherlands, who will be supported by Pol van Boekel, Felix Zwayer and Mark Borsch.
