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.
This is in line with FIFA's objective to further develop women's football as the 38-year-old is one of seven women referees invited to the tournament in India where all the male and female match officials, nominated by FIFA's Referees Committee, have completed a host of activities together in a series of seminars, including theoretical sessions in the classroom and practical sessions on the field of play.
The benefits of joining forces are mutual when men and women team up to hone their interpretation, positioning and decision-making abilities.
