‘Qatar 2022’ three female referees who made it to FIFA World Cup 2022 – Photos



Qatar city - World cup 2022

FIFA discloses list of referee to guide the matches at the 2022 Qatar World Cup that will be played in Qatar, and the first time ever women including an African ‘Rwandan’ female referee Salima Mukansanga makes it to the men’s game.


France’s Stephanie Frappart, Salima Mukansanga from Rwanda, and Japan’s Yoshimi Yamashita are among the 36 match referees.

Brazil’s Neuza Back, Mexico’s Karen Diaz Medina and American Kathryn Nesbitt have been included in the 69 assistant referees.


“We are very happy that … we have been able to call up female match officials for the first time in the history of a FIFA World Cup,” said FIFA Referees Committee chairman Pierluigi Collina.

“This concludes a long process that began several years ago with the deployment of female referees at FIFA men’s junior and senior tournaments.


“In this way, we clearly emphasise that it is quality that counts for us and not gender. I would hope that in the future, the selection of elite women’s match officials for important men’s competitions will be perceived as something normal and no longer as sensational.”
