For the first time in the history of European matches, the Union of European Football Association, UEFA, announced on August 2, the appointment of Stephanie Frappart, France, to referee the UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul. Frappart will be the first woman to lead a major Men’s European match between Liverpool and Chelsea, on August 14. The UEFA revealed that the assistant referees will be Frappart’s compatriot, Manuela Nicolosi and Michelle O’Neil from Ireland.
