Madrid, May 7: Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers is to officiate the 2018 UEFA Europa League final between Olympique de Marseille and Atletico Madrid, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) announced on Monday.

Kuipers, 45, is to referee his second Europa League final, after taking charge for Chelsea’s 2-1 win against Benfica in 2013, reports Efe.

Two Dutch assistant referees, Sander van Roekel and Erwin Zeinstra, along with Szymon Marciniak of Poland will also take part.

UEFA announced that Kuipers was expected to have “two additional assistant referees, Danny Makkelie and Paulus van Boekel, both from the Netherlands. A Dutch reserve assistant referee — Mario Diks — completes the refereeing team.” IANS
