Romanian Istvan Kovacs will referee the 2022 UEFA Europa Conference League final between Roma and Feyenoord at the Arena Kombëtare in Tirana on May 25th.
He was selected by the UEFA Referees Committee to oversee the showdown later this month after a set of positive outings throughout the season, including his display in last month’s Champions League semi final between Manchester City and Real Madrid.
This season, the 37-year-old, who’s been an international referee since 2010, has officiated at 10 UEFA club competition matches. However, this will be his first UEFA club competition final.
He’ll be assisted by compatriots Vasile Florin Marinescu and Mihai-Ovidiu Artene. Meanwhile, Sandro Schärer from Switzerland will serve as the fourth official while German trio Marco Fritz, Christian Dingert, and Bastian Dankert will oversee the VAR.
