Carlos Velasco Carballo

2016-04-30

Carlos Velasco Carballo took the place of Carlos Megia Davila - who retired at the end of 2007 - and was absolutely catapulted to the top. Velasco Carballo made his debut in the Spanish Primera Division in 2004.
He moved up to the UEFA elite category at the start of 2011.

Very very very quick
In two years to the knock-out stages of the Europa League, that is quick, but this beats everything: he took charge of one of the semi finals of the Champions League in season 2010-2011.
But that was then: two weeks or so later he was appointed to the final of the European League and who knows where this is going to stop.

Euro 2012
His first big tournament.

2014
Carlos Velasco Carballo was selected for the WorldCup 2014 in Brazil in which he officiated three matches.

2016
Carlos Velasco Carballo has been been appointed to take charge of EURO 2016.
