Glen Jackson will referee the Super Rugby final between the Hurricanes and Lions in Wellington on Saturday.
Australian Angus Gardner and New Zealander Ben O'Keeffe will be the assistant referees, while Kiwi Ben Skeen is the TMO.
Sanzaar chief executive Andy Marinos said Jackson's appointment was a reward for his consistency.
'This season has seen a number of new referees introduced into the competition under the guidance and support of our more experienced referee group in which Glen has played a big role,' he said. 'I am confident that he will manage the final with the composure and authority required as we look forward to these two great teams doing battle.'
