PRO's Edvin Jurisevic has been assigned to the NASL Soccer Bowl 2013.
The Soccer Bowl will be contested by the Atlanta Silverbacks and New York Cosmos at Atlanta Silverbacks Park on Saturday November 9th.
Jurisevic, 38, is one of 23 U.S Soccer Federation Officials on the FIFA Referee List and has officiated matches this year in Major League Soccer and the CONCACAF U-20 tournament.
He told proreferees.com: "It is a great honor and a great opportunity to officiate the final of the NASL, I'm very excited for the match."
After refereeing 15 MLS matches this season, alongside several 4th Official assignments too, Jurisevic is eagerly anticipating one of the biggest matches of his officiating career after a busy year.
"This will be my first NASL Soccer Bowl. It's a final so of course it's one of my biggest assingments. It's certainly up there with some MLS Playoff games I did last year, and the Open Cup match I was assigned to a few years ago."
"We are a team that have worked really well together in the previous games we have officiated.
"We'll all do our homework and meet for lunch the day before the game to discuss the two teams in the Soccer Bowl. We'll look at what has happened in their previous meetings and the tactics of both sides.
"We are hoping for a really good match and we wish both teams the best of luck. These are two great sides with a lot of history so we expect a good match and look forward to being a part of it."
