According to the BBC on the 2nd , UEFA confirmed its official apology for attending the event and decided to maintain its decision to assign Marciniak as a referee for the 2022-2023 Champions final.
Marciniak attended a conference in Katowice, southern Poland, on the 29th of last month and was a speaker. The event was hosted by Slavomir Menchen, a politician classified as a far-right in Poland, where anti-racism groups and others demanded Marciniak explain how he attended the conference.
“The investigation has made it clear that I had no idea of the nature of the event,” Marciniak said in a statement. “If I had, I would have refused the invitation. “It is important that the value promoted by the organizers does not match my beliefs,” he apologized.
