Profile

Having been appointed as an assistant referee in the Premier League from 2000 to 2002, Lee Mason was given the opportunity to referee in the top flight four years later, and he has maintained his position as a Select Group referee ever since.

Mason officiated in the North West Counties League for eight years before getting on to the Football League ladder for the first time. Two years as an assistant were followed by two years in the same role in the Premier League.

Mason was appointed as a Football League referee in 2002 and took charge of the 2006 League One Play-off Final between Barnsley and Swansea City before making the step up to the Premier League in the same year.

As well as consistently taking control of Premier League matches from 2006 onwards, Mason refereed the 2009 FA Youth Cup Final between Arsenal and Liverpool. Additionally, the Lancashire-born official is chairman of the Bolton Referees’ Society.
