Stephanie Frappart will be the referee for the European Super Cup between Liverpool and Chelsea, the first woman to officiate a UEFA men’s game.
The game will be played at the Besiktas Park in Istanbul on August 14.
It is a tournament between the winners of the Champions League and Europa League.
The announcement from UEFA makes history, as the 35-year-old French official recently blew the whistle for the Women’s World Cup Final between the United States and the Netherlands.
