Christopher "Chris" Francis Bambridge (born 7 October 1947) is a retired Australian football referee, known for having refereed one match in the 1986 FIFA World Cup in Mexico: Spain versus Brazil, in which he wrongly disallowed a Spanish goal by Míchel,[citation needed] in which after the ball hit the crossbar, it bounced behind the goal line and fell back out. He also officiated at the 1988 Summer Olympics.

He now works for Football Federation Victoria as the Referee Development Manager, administering the development and appointment of referees in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.
