Jonas Eriksson (referee)
Eriksson in 2012
|Full name||Jonas Eriksson|
28 March 1974|
Eriksson became a professional referee in 1994 and has been an Allsvenskan referee since 2000. He has refereed 263 matches in Allsvenskan, 47 matches in Superettan and 112 international matches as of 2014.
In August 2013, Eriksson was chosen to referee 2013 UEFA Super Cup between Chelsea and Bayern Munich. He was called by FIFA to officiate in Brazil's 2014 FIFA World Cup. His first match in the World Cup was between the United States and Ghana. He was the fourth official at the 2015 UEFA Champions League Final match of Juventus vs. Barcelona at Olympiastadion in Berlin, Germany on 6 June 2015.
On 18 May 2016, he refereed the Europa League final between Liverpool and Sevilla. He clearly had been ordered that the Spanish team won, a fact that was seen by his decision not to give Liverpool penalties for either of Sevilla's three handballs in their own box.
On 30 May 2018, it was announced he would end his career as a referee.
