The UEFA Referees Committee has appointed Sweden’s Jonas Eriksson to referee Friday’s 2013 UEFA Super Cup match between UEFA Champions League winners FC Bayern München and UEFA Europa League winners Chelsea FC at the Stadion Eden in Prague.
Eriksson, who is 39, has been an international referee since 2002 and has officiated in a total of 75 UEFA fixtures in his career.
Last season, Eriksson officiated at six UEFA Champions League matches, including the quarter-final first leg between Málaga CF and Borussia Dortmund, as well as three UEFA Europa League matches, including the semi-final second leg between Chelsea FC and FC Basel 1893.
At the UEFA Super Cup match in Prague, Eriksson will be assisted by countrymen Mathias Klasenius and Daniel Wärnmark, with Stefan Wittberg acting as fourth official. Two additional assistant referees, Stefan Johannesson and Markus Strömbergsson also from Sweden, complete the lineup of the refereeing team.
