Having worked within the Football League for five years from 2000, Andre Marriner was appointed as a Select Group referee in 2005 and has officiated in the Premier League ever since.
Marriner was a Football League assistant referee for three years before being promoted to the position of referee in 2003.
His first Premier League appointment was in November 2004, when Charlton Athletic defeated Norwich City, and he was added to the Select Group for the following season.
In 2008, Marriner was the fourth official for Manchester United’s FA Community Shield success over Portsmouth and he was invited to join the FIFA list of referees for the following year, leading him to officiate in World Cup and European Championship qualifiers, as well as Europa League fixtures.
Marriner returned to the FA Community Shield fixture in 2010, this time as referee, and he was also in charge of Blackpool’s Championship Play-off Final victory over Cardiff City in 2011.
A return to Wembley Stadium happened two years later as the Birmingham FA referee was in the middle for Wigan Athletic's FA Cup final triumph over Manchester City.
