Referee Stéphanie Frappart will become the first woman to officiate a major European men’s game when she takes charge of the Uefa Super Cup between Liverpool and Chelsea in Istanbul. The 35-year-old became the first woman to referee a Ligue 1 match in April. However, she is not the first woman to be assigned a competitive men’s match by Uefa. Switzerland’s Nicole Petignat refereed three Uefa Cup qualifying round games between 2004 and 2009.
