Only five months with a FIFA badge and Novo Panic took charge of a final in the Euro 2003 u-17 tournament, a sign of a promising career. There were some qualifiers and such until 2006 when he whistled a group stage match in the UEFA Cup. But then no more climbing. He was a UEFA Category 3 referee until he got suspended for life from football in 2010.

investigations

In 2009 the German police started investigations on match fixing. Novo Panic's name was one of the first of the referees under investigation to be disclosed. Then in 2010 he was suspended indefinitely by UEFA.

final

There was another final for Panic in 2003: the 1999 Region's Cup, a UEFA tournament for amateur teams. Maine (Fr) vs Piedmont (1-2).

Did you know
PANIC

  • A certain Marijo C told the court in Germany he had paid Panic 30.000 Euro to help Finalnd win a match against Liechtenstein in a qualifier for the 2010 World Cup. Finalnd got a penalty and a Liechtenstein player was sent off. It is not sure if the allegations are true.
    By the way: one needs a corrupt referee to be able to win against Liechtenstein??? Hah! and Finland didn't even win!
  • Because Schwarz-Weiss had played an u17 player who wasn't eligible, the 4-0 win was changed into a 0-3 loss against Xezer from Baku. This was a first round match for the 2004 Intertoto tournament.
