This elite referee is well experienced internationally. He officiated at the 2003 Confederations Cup, Asia Cups (final 2009) and many AFC Champions League matches.
After missing the 2006 World Cup in 2006, Moradi must have been pleased by his selection for the Olympic Games in Beijing starting at the 8th of August 2008.
Moradi may be regarded one of the best by AFC, FIFA though first put him on the 54 member shortlist of candidates for the 2010 World Cup, but took him off the new list of 38 in October 2008. It was the last chance for this Iranian referee who had to retire because of his age at the end of 2010.
