History was on Wednesday night, December 2, made as French professional referee Stephanie Frappart become the first woman to officiate in a men’s Champions League game.

The 36-year-old made the history in the Champions League game between reigning Italian champions Juventus and Dynamo Kyiv which ended 3-0 in favor of the Old Lady.

However, this is not the first men’s game that Stephanie Frappart has taken over as the Frenchwoman was in charge last year in the Super Cup final between Liverpool and Chelsea.

Liverpool won the Champions League last two seasons beating Spurs in the final, while Chelsea on the other hand defeated Arsenal in the Europa League final.


Last year, Frappart was also the referee for the women’s World Cup final between the US and the Netherlands in France.

In October, Frappart looked after her first Europa League game when Premier League side Leicester City hosted Ukrainian club Zorya Luhansk.

Federico Chiesa, Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata scored the three goals for Juventus in their Champions League game against Dynamo Kyiv.

With one game to go in the Champions League group stages, Juventus are currently occupying second position in group G with 12 points after five games played.
