Peter Daniel Green (born 29 May 1978 in Brisbane, Queensland) is a football referee in the Australian A-League. He has been refereeing in the A-League since 2002. Green was awarded a FIFA badge in 2006 and is now eligible to referee international matches. He was also selected on the AFC Elite Referees Panel for the 2008 year. Peter has been awarded the role of referee for the 2012-13 A-League Grand Final and 2013-14 Grand final as a reward for his consistently high performances.

Controversy[edit]

While refereeing the 2009/10 Preliminary final between Sydney FC and Wellington Phoenix Sydney FC striker Chris Payne scored a controversial goal with his arm, which he awarded, despite protests from the Wellington players. Replays show the ball clearly came off Payne's arm, although it remains unclear to whether it was fully intentional or not. As a result it has reignited calls for Video Technology to be brought into the game.[1]

During the match day 10 clash between Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC in the 2014/2015 season, Terry Antonis clashed into Victory captain Mark Milligan's elbow. Replays showed clear contact between the face and elbow. Milligan was not booked that match and Antonis required 10 stitches as well as suffering blurred vision.
