2022 World Cup: FIFA appoints first all-women referee trio for Germany vs Costa Rica

Stephanie Frappart, Neuza Back, and Karen Diaz have been named the first all-female refereeing team for a men’s World Cup match by FIFA.

On Thursday, the trio will take charge of the Costa Rica-Germany Group E match.

Frappart, who was the fourth official for Poland’s Group C match against Mexico last week, will be the main referee, marking another milestone after becoming the first female to officiate at a men’s World Cup qualifier in March and a Champions League match in 2020.



The 38-year-old Frenchwoman will be joined by Brazilian Neuza and Mexican Diaz as assistants.

Salima Mukansanga of Rwanda and Yamashita Yoshimi of Japan are also taking part at the tournament in Qatar.

Frappart has also taken charge of games in Ligue 1, the Europa League, men’s World Cup qualifying and the UEFA Supercup final between Chelsea and Liverpool in 2019.
