he UEFA Referees’ Committee
announced on December 20th the
12 referees who will control the
matches in the 2012 EURO finals in
Poland and the Ukraine.
We send our congratulations to Howard
Webb who was selected as one of the 12
referees. He will be accompanied by 2
English Assistant Referees and 2 English
Additional Assistants.
Subject to approval by IFAB in March,
should Howard become injured during a
EURO finals game, one of the Additional
Assistant Referees will take over as the
4th Official will be non-English which could
pose communication problems (using the
microphones/headsets) should he take over.
Let’s hope that if the England football team
do not reach the Euro 2012 Final then
Howard and his colleagues can emulate his
previous achievement in being appointed to
the 2010 FIFAWorld Cup final.
Congratulations also to Marc Birkett who was
selected as one of the referees for the Futsal
EURO Finals to be held in Croatia at the end
of January.
Webb selected
