Damir Skomina

Tottenham Hotspur will play in their first ever Champions League final against five-time winners Liverpool on June 1st in Madrid.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side booked their place in the final following a dramatic second half comeback against Ajax a week ago, with Liverpool also winning in equally exciting fashion in their semi final against Barcelona.

UEFA have confirmed that Slovenia’s Damir Skomina will take charge of the match at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Skomina has officiated in four UEFA Champions League matches this season, as well as two UEFA Europa League games.

He will be assisted by his countrymen Jure Praprotnik and Robert Vukan. The fourth official will be Antonio Mateu Lahoz from Spain. The video assistant referee role has been assigned to Danny Makkelie from the Netherlands, who will be supported by Pol van Boekel, Felix Zwayer, and Mark Borsch.

The 42-year-old had also previously refereed Mancheseter United’s Europa League final win over Ajax in 2017, as well as Chelsea’s 4-1 defeat by Atletico Madrid in the 2012 Super Cup.
