Bibiana Steinhaus will become the first female referee to take charge of Bundesliga games next season after being promoted to the pool of top-flight officials on Friday.

"When he informed me in our telephone call about the decision of the referee's commission, I was quite speechless".

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

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.
