France's Stephanie Frappart First Woman To Referee Men's Champions League Game
France's Stephanie Frappart will become the first woman to referee a men's Champions League match on Wednesday when Juventus host Dynamo Kiev in Turin, European football's governing body UEFA confirmed. The 36-year-old has already made history as the first woman to referee in the French top flight, and took charge of the 2019 UEFA Super Cup final between Liverpool and Chelsea. She also made her Europa League debut in October. It is the first time that a woman has been assigned to referee a game in Europe's most prestigious club competition.
