County Durham referee Mark Clattenburg will take charge of Sunday's Euro 2016 final.
The 41-year-old Premier League official, who refereed the Champions League final in May, will work on the final between France and Portugal in Paris.
He becomes the second man to referee the Champions League and European finals in the same year, following on from Portuguese official Pedro Proenca in 2012.
Clattenburg, born in Consett, will be joined by English assistants Simon Beck and Jake Collin, while fellow Premier League referees Andre Marriner and Anthony Taylor will serve as additional assistants.
Clattenburg also refereed the FA Cup final between Manchester United and Crystal Palace in May and becomes the first English referee of a European Championship final since Arthur Holland in 1964.
