He was a UEFA category 2 referee until his retiremet because of his age at the end of 2010..

Did you know
MARTIN INGVARSSON

  • In a 2006 poll held among players by Aftonbladet, a Swedish newspaper, 28% of the voters named Martin Ingvarsson the worst referee of the Allswenskan, the highest division. In the same poll Peter Fröjdfeldt came out as best referee with 78% of the votes.
    In an interview with a local paper called Kristianstadsbladet Ingvarsson said he didn't know why he was impopular. Maybe, he said, it was because he had been around for so long, or maybe it was because of the match Djurgarden-Kalmar (2005) in which he sent off two players and showed a lot of cards.
    Ingvarsson went on saying that he hadn't become a referee to be popular and that following the rules is what a referee should do, not trying to become popular
