Carl Cheffers will serve as the main referee for Super Bowl LVII, the NFL announced on Tuesday.
Cheffers received the award-winning mission for the second time in three seasons and the third seven years ago. He was also the referee for Super Bowls LII and LV.
The league uses a variety of criteria to determine Super Bowl officials, including a season-long evaluation process as well as various seniority and eligibility requirements, including at least three credited seasons as a umpire, at least five credited seasons as a game official and previous on-court playoff experience as an umpire, not including the current season.
Cheffers joined the NFL in 2000 as a side judge and was promoted to umpire in 2008. He is the second-longest tenured umpire in the NFL, behind Jerome Boger.
