Stephanie Frappart named as the first female referee to officiate at men’s European Championships


After UEFA reported the list of referees for this year’s tournament, Stephanie Frappart will become the first female official to officiate at a men’s European Championships this summer.

At the tournament, the female referee may act as a support match official, either as a fourth official or a substitute assistant referee.

Frappart became the first female to referee a Ligue 1 match, a Champions League match, and a World Cup qualifier in the last two years.

In March, Frappart became the first woman to referee a men’s World Cup Qualifier when she oversaw the Netherlands’ 2-0 victory over Latvia.

In 2019, the 37-year-old officiated the UEFA Super Cup match between Liverpool and Chelsea, as well as the Women’s World Cup final, in which the Netherlands were defeated by the United States.

She took charge of Leicester City’s match against Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League for the first time last October.

Meanwhile, Premier League officials Michael Oliver and Anthony Taylor have been named among the 18 referees for Euro 2020, which has been rescheduled to take place later this year from June 11 to July 11.

Both Taylor, 42, and Oliver, 36, will be competing in a major international tournament for the first time.
