Get to know about the referees who have been chosen to oversee proceedings at the EURO 2020 this summer.

Football referees for EURO 2020

The EURO 2020 is only a week away from commencing after a long wait of an extra year due to the Covid-19 pandemic which caused the tournament to be postponed to this summer. The Top-24 teams in Europe will all compete against each other to grab the EURO 2020 trophy on 11th July when it comes to a close.

And in a football match there are times when the focus shifts to one other person rather than the star studded 22 players who are playing from both sides. The 23rd person on the football pitch is the referee who has the final say regarding all decisions on a football pitch.

And with the addition of VAR to football, referee’s often have a bigger say in a football match than expected. UEFA announced in 2018, that VAR will be used in the EURO 2020 to eliminate the errors made by the referees on-field.
