Swiss Massimo Busacca will referee Wednesday's Champions League final between Manchester United and Barcelona, UEFA confirmed today.

The 40-year-old will be taking charge of his first Champions League final, having officiated at the 2007 UEFA Cup final and the Euro 2008 semi-final between Germany and Turkey.

He is no stranger to Manchester United, having been the referee for this season's quarter-final, second leg against Porto. Busacca will be assisted by his fellow countrymen Matthias Arnet and Francesco Buragina.

The fourth official will be Claudio Circhetta, also from Switzerland.
