Who is Slavko Vincic, the referee for Borussia Dortmund v Real Madrid in the Champions League final?

UEFA has appointed Slavko Vincic as the referee for the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on June 1. In European football, there is no greater honour.

But what do we know about Vincic?

Vincic is from Slovenia – the same country as UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin. He was born in Maribor 44 years ago and has been an internationally ranked referee since 2010.

He made headlines in 2020 when he was wrongfully arrested in Bosnia-Herzegovina as part of a police raid on a drug farm and prostitution ring. He was released as soon as no further action was taken when the police realized that he did not know the other arrested people.

What games has he managed?

The Wembley game will be his second European final after taking charge of Eintracht Frankfurt's Europa League clash with Rangers in 2022.

He has scored seven goals in the Champions League this season, including the second leg of Dortmund's quarter-final against Atletico Madrid, and the second leg of the round of 16 between Bayern Munich and Lazio.

Who will help him at Wembley?

Assistant referees: Tomaz Klancnik and Andraz Kovacic (Slovenia)
Fourth official: Francois Letexier (France)
VAR: Nejc Kajtazovic (Slovenia)
