Matteo Trefoloni reached the Serie A in 2001 and became a FIFA referee in 2004. He was an Elite Category ref, but was demoted to UEFA Premier Category referee, when he heard he would be put back into the Serie B starting season 2010 - 2011, he quit.

better

UEFA (and FIFA) must have considered him one of the better refs at first , because he almost immediately took charge of qualifiers for Euro 2008 and the 2006 World Cup and matches in the UEFA Cup and Champions League.

Did you know
UP A LOT AND DOWN A LITTLE

  • When he retired, Trefonloni said that at this stage of his life he should focus on job opportunities and his family. Our guess is that his demotion from the UEFA elite category must have had something to do with it as well.
  • Trefoloni was named in the Italian Calciopoli scandal. According to the book Verdachte voorzetten by Jurriaan van Wessem, Trefoloni for no apparent reason rewarded Lazio a free kick in the last minute of a match in an Inter x Lazio in season 2004-2005. Lazio equalized.
