French Referee Turpin to Officiate Euro 2024 Opening Match

French referee Clément Turpin has been appointed to officiate the opening match of Euro 2024 between Germany and Scotland in Munich.

French referee Clément Turpin will officiate the opening match of the Euro 2024 football tournament between host nation Germany and Scotland in Munich on Friday, UEFA announced on its official website on Wednesday.

The 42-year-old French referee has officiated five matches in the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, including Brazil's 4-1 victory over South Korea in the round of 16 of the first World Cup in the Arab world.

He was also assigned to officiate four group stage matches in the 2016 and 2020 European Championships, with the latter edition being held a year later than scheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In European competitions, Turpin oversaw the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool in Paris two years ago (1-0), as well as the first leg of this season's semi-final between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, which ended in a 2-2 draw in Munich.
