Terje Hauge (born October 5, 1965 in Bergen, Norway) is a Norwegian football referee from the club Olsvik IL. Hauge currently lives in Bergen, Norway and works as a referee advisor in addition to refereeing. Hauge enjoys family life, cycling, running, walking in the countryside and mountains. He also coaches two youth teams.
Since he made his debut in 1990, Hauge has refereed 232 matches in the Tippeligaen. He has been an authorised FIFA referee since 1993. He won the Kniksen award as referee of the year in the Tippeligaen in 2004 and 2007.
Hauge has also refereed in the 2002 World Cup, Euro 2000 (4th referee), Euro 2004 and the 1996 and 2003 Norwegian cup finals. He also refereed the UEFA Super Cup match between FC Porto and Valencia CF at the Stade Louis II in Monaco on August 27, 2004.
Hauge was not selected to referee at the UEFA Euro 2008 tournament however, his fellow countryman and colleague Tom Henning Øvrebø given the honor instead. This marked the first time Øvrebø was selected over Hauge to referee at a major tournament.
Hauge later admitted that although he was pleased with his overall display, he might have been too hasty in sending off Lehmann, and on hindsight should have taken more time to make a decision.
