Nicola Rizzoli has retired

- 76 Comments
Big news not only for Italian football refereeing: World Cup 2014 final referee Nicola Rizzoli has retired from active officiating to take a leading role of the Serie A referee panel.

Time to go: Nicola Rizzoli has retired


The 45-year old architect from Mirandola has refereed three major finals in total: The Europa League final between Atlético Madrid and Fulham FC in 2010, the Champions League final between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern München in 2013 and the World Cup final between Germany and Argentina in 2014. Since 2008, he has refereed 41 UEFA Champions League games, completed by more than 200 Serie A games in his career.

Some impressions...


His achievements, elegance and soft skills as a referee have inspired many match officials, both at the highest and at the grassroots levels. And even if not everybody was content with some decisions he took in some important games and moments, one thing should be sure: A grand referee is leaving the stage.

We therefore would like to say: Grazie, Nicola.
