She also officiated during the 2011 and 2015 women's World Cups and the 2012 London Olympics, and will referee the women's Champions League final in Cardiff on June 1. By extension, she will become the first female referee across Europe's top five leagues.

The 38-year-old German is already proven at the top of the women's game.

The German FA (DFB) announced on Friday that Bibiana Steinhaus is set to become the Bundesliga's first ever female referee starting next season. That's why I was not particularly surprised when he called me on Wednesday.

Bibiana #Steinhaus pfeift in der kommenden Saison in der #Bundesliga: "Ein Traum wird wahr".

Asked about her emotions upon receiving the news, Steinhaus replied: " Disbelief, joy, happiness, relief, curiosity, I do not know.

"For us all, it's a dream has come true".

"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".

She said: "I am very much looking forward to the task that awaits me".

"Of course, I'm aware that I will be the first (female referee) in the Bundesliga and, especially at the beginning of the new season, will face particular attention from the public and the media".
