Retired UEFA Elite Category referee Konrad Plautz passed his referee's exam in 1984. He was an assistant referee in the Austrian Bundesliga from August 1989 till July 1991. Since August 1991 he is one of the regular officials in Austria's top league, the Bundesliga.
He received his FIFA badge in 1996, and from the year 2000 he was listed as one of the 30 'UEFA Top Class Referees'. He retired (nationally and internationally) at the end of 2009.

1996

In 1996 Plautz was chosen to referee the EURO U-16 Championship final between France and Portugal in Vienna.

Since then he has lead quite a lot of international games, making him one of Europe's most experienced officials in active service.

matches

Plautz' experiences for UEFA European Championship qualifiers are dating back to March 1999. From this century on we've traced a lot of selections for Plautz placing him in UEFA Cup matches, Champions League matches and qualifiers for big tournaments, see also his palmares. He reached the CL semi-finals (Arsenal vs Villareal) in 2006.

2007

Plautz was asked to referee the UEFA Super Cup between AC Milan and Sevilla in Monaco at the beginning of the 2007-08 season.

2008

Plautz greatest honour so far is his selection for EURO 2008, which is held in his own country. Plautz is the number one referee in Austria and that made him a logical choice to be selected for this tournament.

He took charge of 2 matches in the group stage.

Did you know
1984

  • Konrad Plautz used to inform us about him and his matches on his own website: http://www.konradplautz.com. A site he stopped maintaining after he retired from football.
  • His favourite music is something called "Volkstumliche Schlager". A kind of music that has to grow on you. Karl May is his favourite author (Indians in drag). He is not married and has no children.
  • In his youth Plautz was a right back player, but a not very good one (according to himself).
  • When he was a teenager Plautz was inspired by Austrian referee Erich Linemayr.
  • Next to his job (he works for Gerätewerk Matrei) and being an international referee, Plautz is coach of a local boys football team and actor and director of the local theatre company called Heimatbühne Navis. His favorite role is the butler in dinner for one by Lauri Wylie. The butler who serves imaginary guests and gets more and more drunk himself. Have a look to get an impression and imagine Conny Plautz in the role.
  • In an interview with (Austrian) Keine Zeitung Plautz told he was in favour of goal camera's. He also thinks it's worth to investigate the value of four linesman during the match.
  • Plautz thinks authority is one of the most important things to radiate during a match. Before the Super Cup match between AC Milan and Sevilla, he stated: "It's nice to be able to make a positive contribution to a match that is flowing, but you must never let your authority slip".
  • In july 2008 Konrad Plautz, as member of the Landtag for the "Tiroler Volkspartei", was caught with an unlucky statement in an interview with ORF Tirol. Plautz said he did not prefer 'Neger-Musik' over 'Schlager und volkstümliche Musik'. Later on Plautz explained he meant Techno-music ("Tschi-Bumm") instead of negro music. (source: DiePresse.com)
