After his strong performance as an official at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, American referee Mark Geiger will call his first MLS game on Wednesday night since his exploits in Brazil, taking charge of the nationally televised Real Salt Lake-New York Red Bulls tilt at Rio Tinto Stadium (9 pm ET, ESPN2).

Geiger officiated three matches at the World Cup, including the France-Nigeria match in the Round of 16, and generally received strong reviews, although not from Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi. Geiger also served as the fourth official for the Germany-Brazil semifinal.

A veteran league official, Geiger has only served as the referee for three MLS matches so far this season, including Real Salt Lake's 2-1 win over the Colorado Rapids on May 14. He whistled at least one penalty kick in each of the three games, four in total.

After officiating the second leg of last year's Western Conference Championship, Geiger worked major international games at the 2013 FIFA Club World Cup in Morocco and the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champions League semifinals in Costa Rica.

The complete list of refereeing assignments has been announced for the upcoming week of Major League Soccer action.
