Stephanie Frappart first woman to referee Ligue 1 match
French official Stephanie Frappart will become the first woman to referee a Ligue 1 match when Amiens host Strasbourg on Sunday.
She has been selected for the game by the French Football Federation to “prepare her for World Cup conditions”.
Frappart will officiate at her second Women’s World Cup later this year.
Germany’s Bibiana Steinhaus has refereed in the Bundesliga, but no woman has taken charge of a top-flight match in England, Spain or Italy.
