Szymon Marciniak confirmed as the referee for the 2022 World Cup final.
Polish referee Szymon Marciniak has been appointed and given the whistle to officiate the 2022 World Cup final between Argentina and France.
He was heavily involved in the Champions League in 2021–2022, officiating four games in the group stage and two in the round of 16, before presiding over Chelsea’s 3-2 victory over Real Madrid in the quarterfinal and Liverpool’s victory over Villarreal in the semi–final—the first time a Polish official had ever presided over a significant European semi–final.

Marciniak has presided over two games this winter, and he has already refereed matches involving both France and Argentina.
After that, Marciniak oversaw Argentina’s 2-1 triumph over Australia in the round of 16.
Thus, the 2022 World Cup final will be overseen by the Polish referee.
