Polish referee Szymon Marciniak has been appointed to take charge of the 2018 UEFA Super Cup match between Real Madrid CF and Club Atlético de Madrid, which will be played at the Lilleküla Stadium in Tallinn, Estonia on 15 August kicking-off at 21.00CET (22.00 local time).

The 37-year-old from Płock will be accompanied by five compatriots: assistant referees Pawel Sokolnicki and Tomasz Listkiewicz, additional assistant referees Pawel Raczkowski and Tomasz Musiał, and reserve official Radoslaw Siejka. Romania’s Ovidiu Alin Hategan will act as the fourth official.

An international referee since 2011, Marciniak has taken charge of 58 UEFA matches. He officiated four UEFA Champions League matches in the 2017/18 season, including the round of 16 second leg encounter between Tottenham Hotspur FC and Juventus.

Last season, he was named as the fourth official for the UEFA Europa League final in Lyon, which saw Club Atlético de Madrid defeat Olympique de Marseille. He was also the fourth official for the 2016 UEFA Super Cup in Trondheim, where Real Madrid CF overcame Sevilla FC.
