Mark Warren (born 4 January 1960, Walsall, West Midlands) is an English former football referee, and one of only ten from the United Kingdom to have been a match official in a FIFA World Cup Final.
He had been an international assistant referee since 1994 when he was selected as an English representative at the FIFA World Cup in France in 1998. He was appointed to the final and ran the line, along with South African Achmat Salie, to the referee, the late Said Belqola.
After assisting in the World Cup Final, Warren graduated to become a Football League referee, leaving the international assistants' list at the end of that year. He had seven years in the middle before stepping down in 2005. He returned to running the line in the Premier League, and refereed just one match in 2005-06, the Football Conference North game between Stafford Rangers and Northwich Victoria on 31 December 2005.
