About Pierluigi Collina


Pierluigi Collina is an Italian former football referee, has been named FIFA's 'Best Referee of the Year' for six consecutive years running and is widely considered to be the greatest football referee of all time.

During his teenage years Collina played as a central defender for a local team but in 1977 he was persuaded to take a referee's course where it soon became apparent that he had an aptitude for the job. Within three years he was officiating at the highest level of regional matches and in 1988 he progressed to the Italian third division and within three seasons he was promoted to officiating "Serie B" and "Serie A" matches.

In 1995 after he had officiated forty three Serie A matches Collina was placed on FIFA's Referees List and in 1996 he was allocated five matches at the Olympic Games including the final between Nigeria and Argentina. Then in 1999 he was chosen to referee the UEFA Champions League Final between Bayern Munich and Manchester United and he cited the match as the most memorable game of his career.

Collina reached the pinnacle of his career in 2002 when he was chosen to officiate at the World Cup final between Brazil and Germany.

As a speaker he is passionate and engaging and speaks on topics including self-motivation and leadership.
