Rolland of Ireland will be refereeing his second Heineken Cup final - having taken charge of the 2004 decider between London Wasps and Toulouse - and his 72nd tournament match which eclipses his compatriot Alan Lewis' old mark of 71.
Rolland has refereed seven European fixtures this season including last month's Heineken Cup semi-final between Saracens and Toulon. His assistant referees for the 2013 final on Saturday, 18 May will be Wayne Barnes (England) and George Clancy (Ireland).
Owens, meanwhile, will be refereeing a fifth European final in the space of seven seasons when he takes charge of the Amlin Challenge Cup decider on Friday, 17 May. The Welshman was previously appointed to the 2007 Amlin Challenge Cup final between ASM Clermont Auvergne and Bath Rugby, and he was also in control of the 2008, 2009 and 2012 Heineken Cup finals.
His assistant referees at the RDS Arena will be Leighton Hodges and Ian Davies, both of Wales.
The Dublin 2013 finals match official appointments were announced today (Tuesday, 7 May) following a meeting of the ERC Match Officials sub-committee. The meeting reviewed match official performances across all relevant tournaments in conjunction with feedback from the referee managers in each Union and from club coaching staff.
