Christos Michas (Greek: Χρήστος Μίχας; died 25 August 2010) was a Greek football referee who became the first Greek to officiate a European Cup final, the 1973 European Cup Winners' Cup Final.[1]

Career[edit]

Michas worked several high-profile matches, including four consecutive Greek Football Cup finals,[2] before being selected for European competitions. His performance at the 1973 European Cup Winners' Cup Final was widely criticized, leading to an investigation.[3]

In 2009, Richard Corbett, an MEP for Yorkshire and Humber petitioned UEFA for a reversal of AC Milan's victory over Leeds United in the 1973 final.[4]
