Referee Steinhaus promoted as 1st women in Bundesliga

Gabon's Aubameyang ends Bundesliga season as top scorer

Since 2011, Steinhaus has served in Bundesliga 2 matches and also officiated the USA women's national team vs Japan in the 2012 Olympic gold medal match.

The 38-year-old, who also works as a police officer, and is dating Howard Webb, has been predominantly officiating lower league games.

"I was quite speechless when I got the call".

Steinhaus said she experienced "a complete roller coaster of emotion" upon hearing the news that she was among the four new lead referees selected to take charge of matches next season.

BUNDESLIGA chiefs have confirmed Bibiana Steinhaus will become the country's first-ever female referee.

"My dream has always been to referee professional football matches. On one hand it is confirmation of my hard work, and on the other hand it is a great incentive to continue to work hard".




And in December 2015 during a second-division game she sent off Kerem Demirbay for a second booking. I am used to this pressure and am convinced I will find my feet quickly.

Demirbay was banned for five matches, and his club made him referee a girls' youth match.

Steinhaus coolly brushed Guardiola's arm off and the Spaniard was criticised in the German media for inappropriate conduct.

Bundesliga and has acted as the fouth official in a number of top flight games.

"I'm really looking forward to the task that awaits me".
