Whistleblower Jarred Gillett will referee the A-League Grand Final between Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory at Allianz Stadium on Sunday.
Football Federation Australia (FFA) Director of Referees, Ben Wilson, announced Gillett had got the nod to officiate his fourth season decider.
It comes after Gillett was named the A-League 2016/17 Referee of the Year at the Dolan Warren Awards on Monday night.
Wilson congratulated Gillett on yet another Grand Final appointment.
“Once again Jarred has proven himself to be the best referee in the Hyundai A-League,” said Wilson.
“Like players, referees aim for a Grand Final appearance and Jarred’s appointment reflects his strong performances and professional attitude this season.
“Sunday’s refereeing team is the most experienced ever appointed with more than a dozen Hyundai A-League Grand Finals between them. They are very well prepared for what will be an extremely competitive match.”
Jarred Gillett said he was extremely proud to be selected.
“I'm humbled to receive this appointment and be a part of Sunday's Grand Final,” he said.
“My sincere thanks go to my fiancé, family, colleagues and the FFA referees department for their unrelenting support throughout the season.
“The refereeing team for Sunday will use our previous grand final experience to our advantage and we look forward to officiating in this Hyundai A-League season finale.”
Gillett will be joined by Assistant Referees David Walsh and Matthew Cream, Peter Green (Fourth Official) and Owen Goldrick (Fifth Official) with Strebre Delovski Video Assistant Referee.
