French referee Stephanie Frappart will become the first-ever female official to referee a men’s Champions League game when she oversees Juventus vs Dynamo Kiev on December 2.

Frappart also officiated the 2019 Women’s World Cup final between the United States and the Netherlands and became the first female referee to take charge of a French Ligue 1 match when Amiens played Strasbourg in April last year.
