Svein Oddvar Moen (born 22 January 1979) is a Norwegian football referee. He took up refereeing in 1995, and made his debut in the Norwegian Premier League in 2003. He represents SK Haugar.[1]


He was selected to officiate the final of the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup on 10 July 2011.[2]

Moen was in charge of the UEFA Champions League quarter final between Bayern Munich and Olympique de Marseille in 2012. He was also in charge of UEFA Champions League second round first leg between Bayern Munich and Arsenal on 19 February 2013 at the Emirates Stadium where he controversially awarded a corner to Arsenal that led to Arsenal's only goal. He was also in charge of UEFA Champions League quarter final first leg between Real Madrid and Galatasaray on 3 April 2013 at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.[citation needed]

On 7 June 2013, he sent off Mario Balotelli in a World Cup qualifying game between Czech Republic and Italy.[3]

He officiated in the Euro 2016 qualifier Germany v Scotland on 7 September 2014. He sent off one Scotland player for a second yellow card but failed to take appropriate action when Thomas Müller grabbed an opponent around the neck and also judged a tackle on Steven Naismith to be only worthy of a yellow card when he was through on goal.[citation needed]
