Michael Oliver

The 33-year-old self-confessed Newcastle United fan received his FIFA badge in 2012 – six years later he was promoted to the UEFA Elite Group of Referees. In other words, the Geordie, if approached by the world governing bodies is qualified to officiate international, Europa and Champions League ties.
