Massimo Busacca
World-class soccer referee

Champions League, European and World Soccer Championships - games at the highest level.

Massimo Busacca was voted Referee of the Year seven times in his home country Switzerland, the World´s Best Referee 2009 and was again called up by FIFA as one of the 30 referees to direct the World Championship games in South Africa in 2010.

With his discrete, yet open personality the referee from Ticino has managed to gain high sympathy status over the past years. Modesty, cordiality and natural authority further characterize his nature. He speaks five languages fluently which is often of great use in communication with players and other referees from all over the world .

Since 1 August 2011, Massimo Busacca has been leader of the FIFA referee department. Earlier he announced to retire as active referee.
