The UEFA Referees Committee today announced the referee for the 2011/12 UEFA Champions League final between FC Bayern München and Chelsea FC, to be played at Fussball Arena München on Saturday 19 May and kicking off at 20.45 CET.

The match will be handled by 41-year-old Portuguese referee Pedro Proença who made his international debut in 2003. He has officiated more than sixty-five UEFA matches in his refereeing career.

Pedro Proença has handled five UEFA Champions League matches since the beginning of the current season, including, among others, the round of 16 return-leg between FC Internazionale Milano and Olympique de Marseille, as well as two UEFA Europa League matches, including the first-leg of the quarter-final between FC Schalke 04 and Athletic Club.

At the final in Munich, Pedro Proença will be assisted by his fellow countrymen Bertino Miranda and Ricardo Santos. The fourth official will be Carlos Velasco Carballo from Spain. The two additional assistant referees are Jorge Sousa and Duarte Gomes. A reserve assistant referee – Tiago Trigo – completes the line-up of the refereeing team.
