At the last Executive Committee meeting, UEFA updated the composition of its committees for the second part of their mandate (2011-2015). There was one change in the Referees Committee, where Youri Baskakov (RUS) was replaced with his countryman Nikolai Levnikov (photo), who refereed at the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France and Euro 1996 in England, as well as the 1997 FIFA Confederations Cup in Saudi Arabia. Apparently, the change was caused by Baskakov’s departure from the RFU. Levnikov is now the chairman of the Russian Referees Committee, while Rosetti is the Head of the Refereeing Department.
