Carl Cheffers will be the main referee for Super Bowl LVII

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.

The rest of the crew:

Referee: Roy Ellison

Linesman: Jeff Bergman.

Judge downstairs: Jerrod Phillips

Field Judge: John Jenkins

Side Judge: Eugene Hall

Back Judge: Dino Paganelli

Replay: Mark Butterworth

Super Bowl LVII will be played on Sunday, February 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
