Howard Webb | Speaker Biography

Howard Webb is widely regarded as one of the best referees in the country. He had a successful career as a professional football official for 12 years, officiating almost 300 matches in the English Premier League. He was also a FIFA international referee for 10 years and was selected to referee in 9 major tournaments, including the FIFA World Cups in 2010 and 2014.

Webb started his career in the lower leagues in Yorkshire and gained a reputation for his extensive knowledge of the laws of the game and ability to handle high-pressure situations. He quickly climbed the ranks and eventually officiated in some of the biggest games in the world, such as the FA Cup Final in 2009 and League Cup Final in 2007. In 2010, he made history by becoming the first referee to officiate both the UEFA Champions League Final and the FIFA World Cup Final in the same year.

After retiring from refereeing in 2014, Webb took on the role of technical director of PGMOL, which oversees refereeing matters in English professional football. He also became a FIFA referee instructor. Currently, he works with broadcaster BT Sport, providing expert insight on Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, and FA Cup matches from a referee's perspective. He also worked for ITV covering the European Championships in 2016. Additionally, Webb is involved in the development of VAR technology in Major League Soccer (MLS) in the US.

Besides his work in the game, Webb recently published his autobiography titled "The Man in the Middle," which offers insight into the modern-day game and his journey from a local lad to the world stage of football. The book was a bestseller on Amazon after being serialized in The Times.
