Anthony "Tony" Taylor (born 20 October 1978) is an English "professional" football referee from Wythenshawe, Manchester.

In 2010, he was promoted to the list of Select Group Referees who specialize in the Premier League, and in 2013 he became a registered referee for FIFA allowing him to referee European and international matches. In 2015, he attended the Carabao Cup final at Wembley Stadium when Chelsea beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0. Taylor returned to Wembley Stadium later that year to attend the FA Community Shield as Arsenal beat Chelsea 1-0. He commented on the 2017 and 2020 FA Cup finals, both between Chelsea and Arsenal; Arsenal won both times 2-1. When selected, he became the first to referee a second FA Cup Final since Arthur Kingscott in 1901.
