Webb announces his retirement after becoming the technical director of Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL).

I am very excited to start this new chapter in my career after a wonderfully rewarding 25 years on the pitch. I have spent over a decade with the best seat in the house for Barclays Premier League matches, been lucky enough to be involved in nine major international tournaments, and taken charge of the UEFA Champions League and FIFA World Cup finals.Refereeing has given me so much and I think it’s important that match officials who have had the rewards remain in the game to pass on their knowledge.
