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.
