Former FIFA-listed referee Chris Foy has been officiating in the Premier League since 2001 and has earned a reputation as one of the most respected referees in the game.
Foy, who was a Football League referee for five years before being promoted to the Select Group in 2001, has been in charge of two major cup finals since his introduction to the top flight.
The first of those was in 2009 when he oversaw Manchester United’s penalty shoot-out victory over Tottenham Hotspur to lift the League Cup. The following year, he was in charge as Chelsea won the FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over Portsmouth at Wembley Stadium.
Foy’s successful domestic career has also included the 2009 FA Community Shield and numerous important matches in the Premier League. He was on the FIFA list for five years before stepping down in 2007.
