Johann (Jan) Bronkhorst took charge of a match in the 1958 World Cup finals and one in the 1960 European Championships.

30 years
Bronkhorst was a referee for 30 years, from 1932 until 1962. When in later years asked about his career Bronkhorst said he came to hate football, as there was no respect anymore, too much violence and too much money involved. Bronkhorst, pretty tough looking himself, quit when in 1962 a fan entered the field and tried to hit him.
Jan bronkhorst died January 1986.
