Staubli to become 1st female referee to officiate at U-17 WC

Switzerland's Esther Staubli is set to become the first female referee to officiate a match at the FIFA U-17 World Cup when Japan takes on New Caledonia in the final round group E match here on October 14.

The benefits of joining forces are mutual when men and women team up to hone their interpretation, positioning and decision-making abilities.
