Who Is Stephanie Frappart? The Referee Is About To Make History At The UEFA Super Cup (soccer)


The 44th UEFA Super Cup will kick off today (14 Aug. 2019) with Liverpool versus Chelsea in Beşiktaş Park, Istanbul. This game will mark something historic, with Frappart becoming the first woman ever to officiate a men's European match. Frappart will be joined by two more women on the pitch — assistants Manuela Nicolosi of France and Michelle O'Neill of Ireland — as well as Cuneyt Cakir, who will act as the fourth official.

She's already had some world-class experience when it comes to refereeing. Frappart officiated the Women’s World Cup final earlier this year, and she was the first woman in French history to referee a Ligue 1 match this April, for Amiens vs Strasbour.

Speaking to the BBC about her history-making Super Cup appointment Frappart stated: "We train a lot of all the time, so we are not afraid because we are always ready for all the games." And Chelsea's Frank Lampard said: "I'm very pleased to be part of this moment in history, which is very much due."
