Referee Carl Cheffers will work his third Super Bowl next month when he takes the field in Glendale, Ariz.

The NFL announced the officiating crew for Super Bowl LVII on Tuesday.

Cheffers' first stint in the big game came in Super Bowl LI in Houston, with the New England Patriots overcoming a 25-point deficit to post a 34-28 overtime victory against the Atlanta Falcons.

He also worked Super Bowl LV in Tampa, with the Buccaneers breezing to a 31-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Joining Cheffers for the game on Feb. 12 are umpire Roy Ellison, down judge Jerod Phillips, line judge Jeff Bergman, field judge John Jenkins, side judge Eugene Hall, back judge Dino Paganelli and replay official Mark Butterworth.
