Clattenburg became a referee in 1990 and first took charge of a match in the Football League in 2000. He was elected to the FIFA list in 2006.
Clattenburg has refereed in the Premier League since 2004 and was the Fourth Official for Portsmouth's Semi-Final victory over West Bromwich Albion in April.
The 33-year-old Northumberland official will be joined by Assistant Referees, Dave Richardson (West Riding FA) and Ian Gosling (Kent FA), with Andre Marriner (Birmingham FA), the Fourth Official.
Portsmouth will compete in the season's traditional curtain-raiser after lifting The FA Cup for the first time since 1939. Nwankwo Kanu's first-half strike was enough to defeat Cardiff City in The Final.
Meanwhile, Manchester United regained the Premier League title on the final day of last season, beating Wigan Athletic 2-0 before going on to beat Chelsea in the first-ever all-English Champions League final in Moscow.
