bio

Galeati started playing at 11 in his home town Castel Bolognese. He continued to play for AC Bologna and was one of those players who always questioned the refs' decisions. Galeati had to quit in 1928 because of a knee injury. He followed his older brother and took up refereeing. His debut in the Serie A was in 1925 and in 1946 he got his FIFA badge, a bit late, but there had been a war.
When he had to retire in 1951 because of his age, this World Cup referee had officiated only 22 international matches. Galeati worked for the railroads, became a stationmaster and died prematurely at 58 of an incurable decease in 1959.

WORLD CUP

  • His last match was Nacional-Sporting in 1951 in Rio. Nacional being the Uruguayan team and Sporting could be either from Peru or, more likely, also from Uruguay. It's not on his palmares here because we haven't found the result and have no idea what this match was for. If you do, please tell us.
