LEE Mason will be the man in charge of the SkyBet Championship play-off final between Derby County and QPR at Wembley.
The Lancashire official has been announced as the referee for the showdown which will determine who joins Burnley and Leicester in the Premier League.
He will be assisted on Saturday 24 May by linesmen Darren England (South Yorkshire) and John Brooks (Leicestershire)
Jon Moss (West Yorkshire) will be the fourth official, while Ian Hussin (Liverpool) has been appointed as a reserve assistant referee.
The officials will wear yellow shirts, black shorts and black socks for the final.
Mason has been a Select Group referee since 2006, the same year he handled the League One Play-Off final between Barnsley and Swansea, and primarily officiates in the Premier League.
The 42-year-old, who is the chairman of Bolton referees’ society, also officiated the 2009 FA Youth Cup Final as Arsenal beat Liverpool.
He has shown 110 yellow and five red cards in 35 matches in all competitions this season, also awarding four penalties.
Mason only oversaw two fixtures in the second tier in 2013-14, Barnsley’s 2-1 win over Huddersfield in August and Nottingham Forest’s 2-0 victory at East Midlands rivals Leicester in November.
His most high-profile appointment of the campaign was being in the middle for Sunderland’s Capital One Cup semi-final second leg against Manchester United at Old Trafford in January.
Mason last took charge of a Derby game in October 2007 as the Rams lost 1-0 to Reading in the Premier League.
His last QPR assignment came in their 2-0 top-flight defeat by Everton at Goodison Park in April 2013.
Derby, who finished third in the Championship, overwhelmed sixth-placed Brighton with a 6-2 aggregate win in the play-off semi-finals.
The Rams are seeking to gain top-flight promotion for the first time since 2008 while QPR are hoping to return at the first time of asking following relegation last season.
Kick-off at the national stadium will be at 15:00 BST, with live coverage broadcast on Sky Sports.
