England's Mark Clattenburg will referee tomorrow's final.
The 41-year-old also officiated in the Champions League final, in which Real Madrid beat Atletico in May.
Middlesbrough-born Clattenburg, who became a FIFA referee in 2000, becomes the second man to take charge of both major European occasions in the same year after Pedro Proenca of Portugal in 2012.
He also refereed the FA Cup final in which Manchester United beat Crystal Palace - a match in which his performance was strongly criticised, not least by Palace manager Alan Pardew over his failure to apply the advantage rule.
The final will be Clattenburg's fourth appointment at the Euros following Belgium v Italy, Czech Republic v Croatia and Switzerland v Poland.
