Alexandru Dan Tudor (born 13 September 1971) is a Romanian football referee. He refereed his first match in the Romanian First Division on 15 May 1999, when he officiated a match between Universitatea Craiova and Universitatea Cluj. He has been a FIFA-listed referee since 2001,[1] and refereed his first UEFA Champions League qualifying match on 31 July 2002. He took charge of a UEFA Cup first round match between Celta de Vigo and Odense Boldklub two months later, but it was not until 4 November 2008 that he refereed his first Champions League group stage match, when he officiated a match between Barcelona and Basel.

At international level, Tudor has officiated at the 2001 FIFA U-17 World Championship,[2] qualifying matches for Euro 2004,[3] Euro 2008,[4] and Euro 2012,[5] and the 2006,[6] 2010,[7] and 2014 World Cup qualifiers.[8]

Career[edit]

Tudor was heavily discussed by both Cypriot and Romanian sports media[9][10][11] following a 28/08/2014 Europa League qualifying game he was in charge of between Omonoia AC and Dinamo Moscow at GSP Stadium, Cyprus.[12] His disallowance of two goals for the home side and acknowledgement of a late goal for Dinamo during injury time was the reason he had to be accompanied by police force at the end of the game. On 29/08/2014 Omonoia AC filed charges against the 42-year old through UEFA.[13] .
