Hobbies:

Bernhard Brugger, active as referee since 1982, received his FIFA badge in 1999. He was a UEFA Category 3 referee but got demoted to 4 (which was changed to 3) in 2011, his last year on the FIFA panel due to age restrictions.

International matches

It's an impressive list, the matches he took charge of, but all in the lower and middle regions of international football. The group stage of the UEFA Cup is the highest round he reached. We guess that Brugger really likes refereeing and isn't very ambitious about it.

once

One day a young (under 15) Bernhard Brugger rode his bicycle past a field where a match was starting. They had no referee and asked Brugger. He liked it and when someone behind his back made him a member of the Salzburger Football association, he had no choice but become an official.

SINCE

  • In 2008 Brugger received death threats, so the Austrian football association gave him a few matches off.
  • His toughest match was Italy - Portugal for the European u21 Championships in 2002. In an interview Brugger says he had to show 2 red cards and 9 yellow, but we found only one red and 6 yellow (source: UEFA.com). Maybe he sent off a coach as well.
