Clattenburg completes a big match hat trick after working the UEFA Champions League final and English FA Cup final in May.
He follows Pedro Proenca of Portugal in 2012 in refereeing UEFA's two highest profile matches back to back.
Clattenburg has handled three previous matches at Euro 2016, though none involving the two teams playing at Stade de France on Sunday.
