Chris Foy has been confirmed as the referee this year's FA Cup Final.
The 47-year-old from Merseyside will be the man in the middle when Chelsea take on Portsmouth at Wembley on May 15.
Foy took charge of last year's League Cup Final and also the FA Community Shield at the start of the current campaign.
"To get any appointment from the FA is always a great honour, but this surpasses anything that has happened to me in the past," said Foy.
"I am happy, not just for my family and friends, but also for the wider referee family.
"I think the foundation stones for times like this are set over a number of years and I've worked very hard during my career to better myself and to reach this stage. It's a great honour."
