Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers will be the man in charge as the Three Lions host the Italians on home soil in a mouthwatering match-up that will have the entire world captivated.
Interestingly, Kuipers - dubbed the world's richest referee - is said to be worth an estimated £11.5m after running branches of a Dutch supermarket chain that sponsors Formula 1 talent Max Verstappen.
At this summer's tournament, he has already taken charge of two group stage matches, Denmark's defeat to Belgium and Spain's thrashing of Slovakia, as well as the quarter-final between the Czech Republic and the Danes.
He was also appointed as the fourth official for the group stage match as England beat Croatia.
In total, he has shown ten yellow cards in his three fixtures as the man in the middle - and players will not want to get on the wrong side of him this evening.
The 48-year-old Dutchman, an international referee since 2006, will be the first referee from the Netherlands to take charge of a European Championship final.
He will be joined at Sunday's final by Dutch assistants Sander van Roekel and Erwin Zeinstra, while Carlos Del Cerro Grande will be the fourth official.
The video assistant referee role has been assigned to Bastian Dankert, and he will be accompanied by Pol van Boekel, Christian Gittelmann and Marco Fritz. Juan Carlos Yuste Jimenez completes the line-up as assistant reserve referee.
