Andorra Vs. England: An All-Female Crew Of Referees Will Oversee The World Cup Qualifier

Posted by

The World Cup qualifier between Andorra and England on Saturday will be overseen by an all-female on-field crew.

Kateryna Monzul of Ukraine will be the referee, with Maryna Striletska and Svitlana Grushko of Ukraine as her assistants.

Stephanie Frappart of France will serve as the video assistant referee. It will be the first time all women officials have officiated a senior England men’s international match.

Denys Shurman, the fourth official, and Viktor Matyash, the assistant VAR, are members of the larger officiating staff.

Monzul, 40, also officiated last year’s Nations League encounter between San Marino and Gibraltar, marking the first time an all-female officiating staff had officiated a senior men’s international.

She was the first woman to referee a men’s top-flight match in Ukraine in 2016, and she has also officiated at Women’s World Cups and European Championships.
