2012-02-15

A player in his youth, Karl Keller also tried his luck at speed cycling. He started refereeing in 1948 and went through the ligas until he reached the first one in season 1955/56. He was an international ref from 1961 until the end of 1965.

job
Keller went straight from school to work for a company called JR Geygy AG where he stayed. At night he studied for "Laborant" and later became a Laboratoty technician.

cup final
Keller took charge of the Swiss Cup final between Servette and Sion in 1965. It's thanks to the people of Super-Servette, who keep a good website, that we know all the above facts.
